Last Day Layout

Hello and Welcome!

Yesterday I treated myself to a day at the craft store picking through their stuff and created my own "kit." It was so much fun. (I also have a new appreciation for all of those kit companies; it's hard work, too.) As my son & hubby were gone all day, I got to sit down and create.

Love this picture of my son after he finished his last day of 9th grade. Oh, the joy! Jeff & I always celebrate with him by going out to Coldstone Ice Cream and playing Alice Cooper's "Schools Out."

The pattern papers, tags, flowers & wood are by Recollections. I also added silver thread, October Afternoon rub-ons, Sizzix journal diecut and Martha Stewart's border punch. The title was embellished with Ranger's black Liquid Enamel. The splatters were made with Heidi Swapp's Color Shine (gold, black, white) on Bazzil's gray cardstock. At this point I thought my clusters needed more "pizazz," so I added Simon Says Stamp's Loopy Circles diecut - love them. This layout is based on a sketch by Stuck?!  Sketches.
