School Girl

So it's Tuesday, and that means a day of crafting ... except it's also school holidays and things never go quite to plan when there are little people around - not my little people but Emma's!  Today was no different! Emma and I selected a sketch to work from but things just didn't quite work out, for Emma at least :(  poor Emma ended up dismantling her page because she was unhappy with it, but I persevered and here is my page:

I find it quite hard working with old photos whose colours have faded, and my first attempt with a white background was awful due to the aged photo, but I quite like the blue that I ended up using.  I found some "school" bits - flash card and handwriting and added them since it was a school photo!

Emma had an unexpected visitor so we only got to attempt one page together today but I did also manage a birthday card:

My card was totally scrap lifted from a pin on Pinterest, and I love it!  I really love that little owl punch!

Thanks for looking!
