Great reunion!

I had a lovely time at my old School Reunion at the weekend.  It was a little difficult to recall some of the names of old pupils, but recognition mostly dawned for the majority of them, with a little reminder now and again! This year all the girls who started Brownhills High School for Girls in Tunstall in 1956 reached their 70th birthdays this year, so I guess we were entitled to forget a few names.
I found my old Prefect's badge in my jewellery box and decided to take it with me!
I've always liked it; I don't know what metal it is made from but it looks rather like pewter.
When we got to the hotel, one of our number had made a special 70th birthday cake for everyone and her daughter had decorated it brilliantly in our school colours! 
Quite something huh!

It tasted good too!
My school which is in the photo in the top corner has now been demolished!

Not that the girls made me think of witches you understand, but this is what I made when I got home. It's for the challenge at Addicted to Stamps with this picture inspiration
I simply took the colours for the stripes in the stockings. It's a Bugaboo image with a die cut sentiment and a little Glossy accents added to the shoes.

It's also for AAA Cards Clean and Simple Halloween!
