Ready Set Go

Hello Chic Tags fans, Melanie here today to share my very first layout with the School House Collection!!! I have to proclaim my love this collection, the colours and patterns are my favourite, also the little quotes and sayings are so much fun! Even though this is a themed collection it is very versatile.

I don't have a lot of school themed pictures of my daughter, so I opted to use a generic picture of my daughter and journal about her new school year and the expectations of being in the 4th grade. The title which would typically be used for a sport themed layout worked very well within this concept as well. The title was cut with my Cameo and I lightly misted gold mist to make it stand out. 

I love working with negative shapes, this circle cut out was leftover from a previous project. It was almost the exact size as the mini icons which worked perfectly. To create mini clusters of embellishments, I layered the mini icons with enamels dots, thickers and tags. 

I hope my layout has inspired you to approach documenting your children's school activities in a different way. Just remember that you don't always need the exact pictures to document the moment.    Happy scrapping!
