A Mini Book for Angela

Sorry this is a long one!
Page 1
The end of the school year is always tinged with sadness as staff retire or move on, and I have been busy making a couple of little books for the very special people in my departments who are leaving.
page 2
This book is for my Line Manager, Angela, who was there at my interview and who I loved straight away. We have cooked together twice a week with our lovely girls ever since and when Year 11 leave to do their exams we have sewn t-shirts together.
page 3
I tried to give the impression that I was taking pictures for the girls, but I was really trying to get silly little pictures of the special things in the classroom that made me think of Angela and the happy times we have had.
Page 5
Now I’ll let the rest of the pictures tell the story ………
Page 4
And hope they give you as little insight of how I adored working with the kindest, sweetest lady ever.

Helen, this is such a beautiful book you have made! I think this has to be my favourite of your creations so far! I love how it is all doodles with no embellishments. It just shows how great you are at making something beautiful without it being expensive. You so deserve to be discovered! Carly xxx

What a thoughtful gift, she must mean a lot to you. I love the simple look with the doodles and funny sayings. When you hand it over have a box of tissues handy to mop up the tears, Angela is going to LOVE it!!!

What a lovely, clever, personal thing to do and to show us too. We are so privelleged that you chose to show us such an insight into your daily life. It's a fantastic gift that I'm sure Angela will treasure. x
