Happy Friday CE Friends! Nicolle here and I am continuing the grand opening celebration at Creative Embellishments with a Giveaway on the Facebook Page. All you have to do is head over to Creative Embellishments Facebook Page and LIKE (look for the giveaway photo to enter using rafflecopter) for a chance to win a 10.00 gift certificate to the Store. You can also enter through the rafflecopter attached to this blog below the gift certificate image. I will randomly draw a winner at 12pm eastern time on Thursday, September 12th.
Today I am also sharing a layout I created with some of the school themed chipboard and wood pieces that the hubby and I designed. My daughter Jolie’s first day back to school was Wednesday, September 4th. Every year I take many photo’s of my children and at least one of them getting on the bus. I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. Jolie is a 6th grader and started middle school. She’s the youngest of my 4 kiddos. Many parents can’t wait until their children go back but for me ..well I miss them. I love spending as much time with them as I can. Maybe it’s because I am getting older and 2 of my children have graduated and starting a new chapter of their lives ..adulthood.
Note: I used a Scrapfriends sketch for inspiration.
I did very little altering to this chipboard piece. I wanted to go with a neutral (kraft) page for this layout. I just added a bit of black ink to the edges of the bus.
To alter the #school (hashtag word) I did the same as the bus with just lightly inking around the word to keep with the look of the layout.
I am just loving this little wood bus and love adding different textures and media to my pages. I colored it using yellow and black Faber Castell Pitt Pens.
