Happy Monday, peeps, and a special hello to Miss Joan Smith today. ;) Joan is a scrapbooker and probably one of the most complimentary people who has ever graced the comment pages on my blog. Your comments do not go unnoticed, my dear! HUGS to you, Miss Joan, and thank you so much for all the lovely comments you leave for me!
Now for my page. Who else, but my scrappy buddy and first grandgirl, Grace, is the subject of today's layout. When Grace was in fifth grade (she is now in 8th!!! Where does the time go???) she wanted to try homeschooling. Daughter Cyndi was at home then and figured why not, let's give it a go. They had some wonderful adventures, field trips, and learning experiences that I'm sure Grace will never forget. That was the only year of homeschool, however, as Grace is just too much of a social person to spend another year away from her classmates and buds.
My title is simple. I used the fabulous Fun Alphabet lowercase die set and cut each letter three times, stacking them to give them dimension. The fun journaling box, and the cute banner too, are part of the paper collection I used for this page, October Afternoon, Schoolhouse. MCT Alpha Pack (Alpha 2) stamp set looks awesome for my journaling card, and the apple and pencil are from the Write On stamp set. I thought the fun splats in green, from the Family is Everything set, were the perfect finishing touch to this science page.
For the subtitle sentiment, I again used the Write On stamp set.
