Hey there!
Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
I am sad to say that I am headed back to work today after having most of the summer off. It went by way too fast!
I played in my scrappy room yesterday and combined a few challenges:
Rochelle Spear's Back to School challenge.
Grand Diva's Creative Corner sketch challenge and
Scrap Our Stash tic tac toe challenge.
I was looking for a school photo to scrap for this page when I came across this photo of Sierra from preschool that I hadn't scrapped yet. She was 5 years old in the photo and now she is almost 20!
Any who, I used Prima papers and Creative Embellishments nested stars and a wood veneer heart.

I cut strips of the papers and layered them behind my photo. I also added a piece of torn washi tape. I added a dictionary paper 2x3 paper, a tag, a ticket and a wood veneer piece with October Afternoon washi tape with the number 5:

I stitched through the paper strips and added a few star chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments. I added some watercolor to my background. I added a wood veneer globe to the lower right corner of my photo:

Here are the challenges I used:

I used grid paper, ruler, globe, staples and paint.

I used dictionary paper, ruler and a few washi tape arrows.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
