Not crafting but funny

My 11 year old daughter Kathryn was out playing last Wednesday and decided to wander into the lift of the block of flats behind us. She didnt tell anyone she was just out and about. I was on the computer, dh in the kitchen, then I hear a neighbour was fixing his stock car at shout out to hubby the he says "your daughter is stuck in the lift".
Poor hubby went up to the third floor , poor thing was out of breathe due to his asthma and other lung problem, luckily she was fine. Jason our neighbout tried opening the door with a crow luck. So 999 was called. They turned up quite quickly, luckily Kathryn was calm the whole time and we were even entertained by Jason and his mate who decided to run a race.
Anyway after a short time we could hear sirens, around they came blue lights flashing, I directed them to the block, then to my hubby. They had the door open pretty quick , the lift wasnt level with the doors so they had to help her down. Myself and my younger daughter watched from our balcony and gave a big cheer. Kathryn was given the call out sheet as a souvenir of her ordeal. My hubby having some journalistic experience (in the music press) decided to write a report which I made into a newspaper cutting using a site I found on the internet.
It soon got around the school the next morning what had happened and she soon saw the funny side of it.

A Book For Kathryn

Kathryn will be leaving her Primary school in less than 2 weeks and I decided to make her a book that she can take in on her last day for her schoolmates and teachers to sign. I remember doing this at school and using an autograph book.
I have used acetate on the covers and left the decoration quite simple. Chipboard letters, some organza ribbon some eyelets and die cuts.
Kathryn likes it.

Many Thanks lol

It's been a while since my last posting, I have been busy with many things including the summer fair (what a distater...never again).
Anyway my oldest daughter Kathryn has her first ever trip away with no family. 4 days with her classmates having lots of fun, Kathryn came back not feeling so good and had to take a day off school yesterday, anyway she is back today and asked if I could make Thank You cards for all the teachers/assistants who went on the journey, so here they are 5 out of the 6. Made mostly with printable papers and embellishments.
