One more hug for the road...

Thought I'd messy things up with this layout. The photo is Sadie's first day at school and I am the proud mummy wondering where on earth that last few years has gone and how my baby got to be 5 years old already! Phew! This kind of messy, less structured layout is always a bit daunting for me as throwing paint/ink at cardstock is always a bit worrying - what if you don't like the results? Anyway I pressed on and it came together so quickly... and the bits of patterned paper were all leftover scraps  so that's always a bonus! Oh and I used some washi tape for a bit of interest too. Yay! Washi Rocks!
Might do a few more this style! Oh and I just noticed it kinda matches the mini book I made just a few months back - not sure if subconsciously that was intentional!
Thanks for popping by - have a cool, crafty weekend everyone!



  1. Wow, love this LO. Everything on it goes together so nicely, and the photo stands out.

  2. What an absolutely terrific page! I love the neutral kraft background and white paint under the photo (which, by the way, is an an entirely darling, heartwarming snap).

    Thank you very much, my dear, for your lovely recent blog comment. Alas, so many things came up in my life and I pretty much stopped frequenting around the end of 2011. I'd love to have more time to devote to that site again one day, and hopefully will, but for now my scrapbooking blog is my little corner of the web to blog about my creations and scrappy related thoughts. I'm really touched that you came to visit me there, thank you again.

    ♥ Jessica
