school photos, the good, the bad, and the down right ugly!

Every year I have them printed, and every year I get a bit stuck on how to scrap them. This year, James will not be having his scrapped, he looks like a lunatic! So here is my sweet cherub face James, when he was innocent and adorable!

Basic Grey's Oxford range again came to my rescue as the elements on the sticker sheet lend themselves to many embellishments for a layout.

I used Basic Greys Deans List as my base, the perfect ledger sheet, and attached coloured twine across the top of the page with Basic Grey brads. I then used my scraps from Frat House to make little tags which I stitched around, matted a shield sticker with Study Hall, both of which are from the Oxford range too. I also used other bits and bobs I had to complete the banner look. A great way to use up some odd pieces you may have at home.

I then layered a couple of label stickers from the sticker sheet as part of my title, and embellished the side with these gorgeous wee pencil stickers, again from the sticker sheet, and used dimensional magic on them to create a point of difference.

Journalling straight onto the patterned paper is a bit out of my comfort zone, but I think it looks ok.

So anyway, thanks for looking guys, I hope this inspires you to get some of those old class photos out to scrap, the old retro ones could be fun too!!!

.... love Belinda
