Hickory Dickory elements to go with the freebie papers
Yesterday went well and my nails are looking fantastic after all that loving care..shame it won't last!!
It was Emma's first assessment and she was just a bit nervous, not sure if it was just first assessment fears or my weather worn hands that gave her the jitters! Mind you, it didn't help that her water bowl leaked all over her trolley, her nerves really started jangling then, the trolley was awash!!
But like a true professional she discreetly and efficiently moved her things and replaced anything which had got water logged and continued from there. I was so proud of her!!
Emma has been know to be one for tears..she's a real girlie, if you know what I mean, and the thought did flash oh so briefly through my mind "Oh no!! No tears Emma!! Not now!!" It would have been a bit of a disaster if Emma had added her tears to the flood!!
But she was BRILLIANT and smiled and chatted as if I was a real client...not her grandma, lol!! Perhaps it helped that I was. Let's face it if you can't comfortably chat to your grandma...even under stress then who can you chat too!! I tried to do my bit by continuing to smiling encouragingly and chatting in the hope that I could reassure her and she would not feel too stressed. It may have helped, who knows...or she may have thought I jinxed her, lol!!
But she did brilliantly and the tutor praised her work...and I have my fingers crossed, well after the varnish had dried, that she gets good marks for it. I know that I am really pleased with her handiwork , I even took a photo of my nails when I got home as a memento of her first assessment. Mind you it was a trifle tricky doing it with one hand..but I think I did it justice.
Now to scrapping!! Today you can see the elements that go with the Hickory Dickory Dock Papers. Over the next two days you can download them, I just hope those little mice find some good homes!!
I was asked if I could do the clock and mouse as an element..and so I have plus two curled ribbon borders with mice running up and down them, two frames, tow tags, two different sorts of bows and two buttons....I could have gone on but time ran out!! Lol!! Oh yes and one little flower!!
You can download today's elements here
