I scrapped too!

Hey, why not...since I'm on a roll with making things other than cards, right? LOL!



This photo was taken last year on one of Kara's preschool field trips. It was taken by one of the other moms (who is a photographer) and she gave it to Kara on her fifth birthday. I just loved it, especially the sparkle effect she added in the eyes, and I've had it hanging on my fridge since she gave it to us. Well, when OCL came out with the new Art of Nature set, I noticed that the wheat Kara is holding would match with the one stamp in the set and thought it'd be cool to make a scrapbook page with them together.

I started off following a layout from the September Page Maps site (the fourth one down on that link) but then the sketch sorta turned into something else. The turquoise circle and the tag are both up on Pop-up Glue Dots. I also added a "hidden" journaling tag....something that I think is really fun to do with scrapped pages. The tag tucks into that light purple panel and can be pulled out with the ribbon/button. Here's a close-up of the journaling tag...



Thanks for stopping by my blog today and I hope you enjoy what's left of the weekend.
