School time is nearly here again.

Hi, Deb with you today. It's that time again, the children are getting ready to head back to school in the next couple of weeks. The booklists are getting picked up and sorted, the uniform checked for size, shoes ..... do they still fit??? How much do these children grow over the holidays?! My family is a real mix of ages, one is getting ready for senior high school, the other is about to enter his senior years of primary school and then we start on the grandchildren! Yes, two are going back to primary school, one is starting her first year and others are off to kinder or preschool. 

As you can imagine, there is never a shortage of scrapbooking material! This layout goes back a couple of years when one of the grandchildren started school. It was nice to do a school photo without yellow!

I have used the ABC123 title for this page, altering it with a simple technique of inking. In this instance I have used Encore Metallic Ink in blue. The result is a stunning and soft metallic finish.

I also had a play with some cabinet making timber veneer. This is thin and delicate making a nice elegant embellishment. What do you think? Would you like to see them on the shelves? 

These timber slivers were cut in 2 different colors and here I've used a light journal piece to record the basic details of the photo.

Materials used: 
A2Z Scraplets
G45 Papers
Jenny Bowlin Bingo Card
Little Birdie Flowers
Little Birdie Burlap doily
Glitz Large Rhinestone flair
Kaiser Droplet

Until Next time
Happy Scrapping
