Best Friends & School

Just a couple of layouts - firstly a layout of my two beautiful daughters - I'll cherish this one day when they're stealing each others makeup and clothes or just being mean to each other!The pp behind the photos was distressed and then adhered to the layout with two rows of stitching from my machine. This layout was created for the "Use it or lose it" Challenge at - I had to create a layout using these flowers.

I also created a layout for the SBB weekly challenge - with the theme "school". Would you believe shortly after getting Amber's school photos I lost them!? I had no idea at the time how it happened, I mean I'm a scrapper who looks after photos with my life! Turns out I forgot what they looked like and kept overlooking them - they were safely in my draws the whole time! So, I decided I would use one of them for the challenge - this photo was of Amber when she was in Grade 2

Both layouts were created with a little inspiration from 2Peas. In this layout the middle pp was shaped by me, then crushed, flattened and then sanded so you can see the creases. I doodled around the edge. I stapled the two ribbons across the page and created the apple and notepaper with my Snag'm stamps from Imaginisce (they were stamped on card, cut out and then attached with 3D foam tape). I then added some school themed stickers and brads.

Great layouts. I need to think of more ways to add interest like the distressing and stitching. Thanks for the inspiration.
That picture of your two girls is so adorable. Believe me those teen years will be here before you know it.
