...or to put it another way, one woman's scrappy castoffs are another woman's scrappy windfall!
Jen recently did a bit of a clean-up in her scrapping room to purge some paper and product that she no longer wanted and I was the lucky recipient of all of this. Score for me! Included in this little stash were a sheet of red grid paper and a yellow sheet with apples. These papers looked so nice together and matched well with a blue/red/yellow striped paper that I had just picked up for .25 in the sale bin at the LSS. I went looking for a photo and found one from 1995 taken of Matthew on the morning of his first day of kindergarten.
I wanted to create a layout that was different from what I normally do. I found this unique sketch by Julie Bonner:
Then I got to work to create this layout:
It's totally busy and not my style but I love it! And, I'm so happy to have this little moment of Matthew's life documented.
Until next time...
