By the seaside.

Good morning bloggers,
A bit of a long post today, So please stay with me !

Hope you are all enjoying the Jubilee celebrations that are going on,
Yesterday they had a church service at Mackenzie's school, followed by a tea party.
Then later a display from each of the 6 decades of the Queen's reign.
Crikey the 70's & 80's brought back some fun memories.

At the end of the day each child in the school was presented with a souvenir poster,
It said 2012 in big letters, and it had the Olympics & Jubilee logos in the corners
But when you looked closely it was made up of small thumbprint photos 
of each child in the school over 360 in total ~ what an awesome keepsake!

I can't believe its June already, Better blow the cobwebs off my Christmas stamps LOL! 

Anyway it's my turn to host the challenge over at ALLSORTS this week,
