School layouts...

Yes, you read that title right! I scrapped school photos!! lol. The Girls Loft Kit I'd purchased was full of yummy school colours and bits and bobs...just perfect to lift those dreadful school portraits. If you've been reading my blog for a while, you would know that Sethy-boy doesn't normally look this pained. lol. I tell you, those blue school shirts on the blue background, paired with a child with messy hair and forced smile, are just not inspiring at all. Having said that, I really like how this layout turned out. The full title was going to be K-Y, as he was in Kinder Yellow last year, but I thought better of it. hehe. I think the trick to scrapping these photos is just to ignore the photo...lol.
This next layout features a photo taken by Seth's current teacher at Grandparents Day this year. I cut the alphabet border using Cricut's graphically speaking cartridge. Seth is so lucky that all four of his grandparents were able to come along and celebrate at the school. Apparently when they walked through the door with all the other grandparents, Seth was craning his neck to see who was coming to visit him...he was so surprised and happy and proud to show off his work. The teacher also told the grandparents how well Seth's doing at school and what a joy he is to have in her class. Four grandparents went home that day with very puffed up chests filled with pride.

I've still got enough goodies in my kit to make a few more layouts, so I'll upload those soon. If you haven't scrapped those school photos yet, get to it! Its not as scary as it looks.

Cheers, Lis.
