Okay there goes another weekend in a blink of an eye.  I realised that its been over a week since I've posted as life has been just a little hectic as it always is this time of year.  

My son just completed year 12 and not only did we have his Formal to attend, we had his final graduation at the school  where they are handed a portfolio detailing all of their accomplishments throughout the last two years of senior school and to top it all off  he passed his manual drivers test first go, a very proud moment for  his Father and I.  

Next year will be an interesting year for  me with no more running around after kids, just typing that makes me laugh as I am sure I will still be doing washing, cooking and cleaning at least until they finally move out.

Okay so before I head off to do a few of those chores I listed I thought I would quickly share a page and card I made for Paper Temptress.

I have triple machine stitched a circle around the pictures, popped a journal tag behind the image telling the story about how my son had to have these ducks.

One of the things I love most about Hambly transparency's, is how great they look, when overlayed onto plain cardstock.
