As I watched him line up with his class before school and walk into the school building I thought, "My heart just walked through that door." Needless to say, I was surreptitiously bawling. I didn't want him to see Mommy crying when he was trying so very hard to be brave.
The design of this layout is inspired by this WONDERFUL sketch created by my super-talented friend Diana for her Sketchy Thursdays challenge over on her blog Design by Diana:
The embellishment of this layout is inspired by this week's prompt over on The Pink Ninjas: stripes or polka dots?
I created the polka dots on the base sheet with some bubblewrap and paint. (Can you say, "technique a la mode in Heidiville"?) You can't see it very well on the full page picture but as you can see by the detail above, there are manilla polka dots all over the base page in addition to the blue ones.
I'm linking this baby up to my Finally Friday challenge on SPCC...use household items to embellish your creation! Have you joined me in the fun on this challenge yet??!!
I am McLovin' the new DCWV The Mod-Retro Stack!!! I included a sheet from the 8x8 stack on this layout. It's hard to see in the pics but the entire orange-y polka dot area is glazed. It's sooooo pretty.
