I had had quite a restful weekend. Even though I did a class yesterday, I have managed to actually rest and just spend some time reading a magazine etc. That is the first in a looooong time! Think I definitely need some more ME time every now and then!
Anyways, I eventually got to photograph this layout, as yesterday afternoon was so dark and overcast, that I could not get it done.
Here was the sketch first and challenge quote.
And here is my take on it.
I had got this photo from my Mom a few weeks ago and really wanted to scrap it, as this was a really poignant year in my life - Grade 1 - first year of school. Looking back it was the captured moment of a sweet, innocent girl and the start of a great school career. I enjoyed school and so I can look back fondly at this moment and photo!
I used Pink Paislee Old School paper and accents, as well as Basic Gray Oxford chipboards, with some October Afternoon and & Gypsies stickers too. The flowers are Prima and Petallo. I did some painting and stamping on the background and like the oldy feel of this layout.
Here are close-ups for good measure.
Lastly, a close-up of the journalling.
Can you remember that first year of school?
Maybe the thought is inspiration for a layout....
Hope you have a super Sunday afternoon!
Thanks for visiting..
