First Day of School - JAI

Wow, back again with another post already today :)

One of my goals for 2012 is to do more scrapbooking - I have mentioned it (or complained about it!) before... it's something I find very challenging!

Anyway, the fabulous ladies at Just Add Ink are some of my greatest influences in convincing me to give this a go, and guess what? They're having their first scrapbooking challenge, so it's great timing! You can check it out here and play along too.

I thought the Play Date Quick Accents and DSP would be perfect for recording my son's first year of school, and although he is going into Year One this year, and these products are now retired, I have only just completed this layout of his first day of Prep:

(I have added journaling to the Top Note piece; it was a bit personal for my son to want to share with everyone!). The background 12 x 12 piece is So Saffron (hard to see in the pic) and the layout was adapted from a Page Maps sketch.

Thanks JAI team and also to my friend Anne for patiently encouraging me to attempt to scrap :)


Happy New Year!

Hi all,

Wishing everyone a very happy, healthy, safe and creative 2012!

Here's a picture of some of my 2011 Christmas cards - they needed to be very simple so I could make a lot of each design!

Hope you are enjoying your first day of the New Year!
