First Day of School - 2014

Hello my scrappy friends!  Yesterday the house was clean, we had plenty of leftovers for lunch and dinner and just a bit of laundry needed to be I started a two page layout, finished it this morning!  I started with lots of spray inks, regular inks, smooching inked paper, then covered most of it!  So I added a few more ink spots, not sure I like it all but it's two pages completed!

This was the first day of school in 2014 when my son was entering 6th grade and my daughter into 5th grade.  Two different schools, two different bus times for pick up!  Both of these pages were inspired by several different challenges.

another freaking scrappy challenge ...Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - use circles...on my 2nd page.

Sketches In ThymeSketches in Thyme - #288 - my first page

Sketches in Thyme - #290 - my second page...very loosely based but it started as my inspiration! 

"Lasting Memories" Scrapbook Layout ChallengesLasting Memories - #359 - Polka Dots - On the pp used as photos mats on page two...yes they are covered but there is a tiny banner piece in the upper left corner!  There is also a little piece of dotted pp on the first page under the heart paper.
