End of an era


Today is my youngest sons last ever day at primary school. It is the end of a era for me, I have been a parent at the school for the last 16 years and am feeling a little sad (and very old) today.
 This is the card/gift I made for my son's teacher as a little thank you - 
It is a tealight box card which I made following the tutorial on the Crafter's Companion website.
I have used - 
  • white and pink centura pearl
  • acetate from Crafter's Companion
  • Die'sire classiques floral corner
  • Spellbinder's stately circles and circle nesties
  • LOTV mixed circular sentiments
  • ribbon, lace and pearls from my stash

Well I must go and get tissues ready for my son's final assembly.

Thank you for stopping by
