Back to School.

Evening Everyone
Perhaps I should go back to school, I could certainly do with some lessons on a laptop.
I spent the weekend trying to get on line so that I could post some cards, cursing the fact that I had no signal, only to find that I had some how switched off my wifi connection. I didn't even know you could do that so how dumb am I lol.
Last week was a rather hectic one all round with most of the kids going back to school, and trying to get back to some sort of normality.
Megan, my eldest Grandchild has started Secondary School (where did those 11 years go to!!!)
We had all the usual first day tears and trauma's, although I think she is settling to it all quite nicely now.
Even more scary is the fact that the twins started school today!!!!
This was taken on Sunday when they had a last minute try out of their uniform, don't they look grown up?
I was a very bad Mam-ma and didn't get a card made for Megan but I did manage to make one for Saskia and Ciaran.
Once again I used the lovely Lilli of the Valley Back to School kids coloured with distress inks. The background papers are from my stash and the border punch is an EK Success one.
Saskia is standing on top of a pile of books under the Good Luck greeting (Both are Magnolia stamps available from Sir Stampalot).
And Ciaran is standing on the desk next to an apple for teacher (also by Magnolia). I only hope that neither of them behave in this manner when they are at school.
I am entering this in to the challenge over at Cupcake Craft where it is Back to School.
Of course I can't play favourites so here is Megan in her new school uniform.
And I can't leave Reece out now can I.
Better get back to my homework or I might be in for a detention tomorrow.
Nite nite.
Love and hugs
Kimx
PS Don't forget to watch Jenny on Create and Craft tomorrow with some fab new stamp sets.
