"Oldie for Friday"

Hello Blog friends, Happy Friday ..... OMG!!! Friday already!!!!!   I thought I went to sleep last night and it was only Monday !!!   That`s certainly what it feels like with the weeks disappearing so quickly.
The boys School broke up yesterday for Summer Break ... who are they kidding SUMMER!!!  Not here so far anyway,  I do hope the weather gets better, our boys hate to be inside.  Does not have to be "splitting the pavements sunshine" as long as it is dry.
We were at their End of Term concert on Tuesday.  Now bear in mind there are only 14 pupils in the very Rural School.  The teacher/teacher helpers and all the parent helpers like each child to do something.  Most of them play musical instruments, are brilliant at speech & drama and sports of all kinds.  They entertained us so well, there was lots of fun and laughter.  They were presented with so many awards and medals.  For such a little school its amazing what they get up to. This time we did notice that all the children seemed to have grown so much since the beginning of the year.  The two primary 7 pupils who were leaving to progress to High School were serenaded with a song especially written by the pupils.  It was so sweet it had the mothers of the two children in tears.
Anyway its Oldie for Friday again started by Erika over at :-
Its fun, an opportunity for you to show things you have done in the past.  Come on, go have a look, there is bound to be something you could show.
Here is mine:-

Base card approx 6 x 6
Pink Card stock
A Sugar Nellie Digital image coloured with ProMarkers and Prisma Pencils
SW Bow Die and a few Pearls from my box
I am not a colourist!!!  but you know sometimes, something just goes "right" well this was one of those times.  I have to say I was rather pleased with the finished result.  Actually that`s something I might just have a go at again soon.

That`s it for today folks
Thank you for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time
