Yes, in January.
Which might not be so odd, except that these are September photos.
But who's checking, right?
I often find, after I've taken a bit of a break from scrapbooking, that I have to ease back into it for the first layout or two. Like I've forgotten how to do it? Just like every time we drive up to the hill, I'm absolutely convinced I've completely forgotten how to snowboard. Every. Single. Year. Hope I outgrow that soon. Anyway, that easing in produced a clean and simple style that works on a layout.
I loved using the Simple Stories Smarty Pants line from Love is in the Details. The journaling cards (cut from 12x12" paper), along with a sticker, some Heidi Swapp paintable chipboard accents and the American Crafts Thickers alphabet are enough to create a dynamic layout.
And if more stash-busting was the goal, (I just moved my scrap room. Stash busting seems particularly needful right now.) I think I accomplished that with the alphabet design.
Look at these cute little schmeebly kids! Especially the schmeebliest little one. Who wasn't actually starting back to school but was quite happy to be included in the back to school photo! Lol.
Thanks for stopping by today!
