A Teacher's Love

OOOO I like working with the bold colours of the Sassafras range. It matched this funky photo perfectly and really added to the mood of the LO. The designer for Sassafras also had a splendid idea to create a lovely scalloped/shaped border strip (matching the paper!) on the back of the price/name strip we normally snip off and chuck away! e.g. the owl strip and music notes. I must admit some of the paper is really bright and bold but I cut out little pieces to add the colour burst and focal point but not overwhelm the LO. (On this LO I used the mushroom/snail/cloud/owly bits)
I had a packet of school embellishments in my stash that was too bright and not of amazing quality but combined with the bright paper they just added the dimension needed. They even have little shaker boxes with bling (when last did you make one of those??). Reminds me, I saw some cards with a shaker box filled with jelly beans or hundreds and thousands.... my daughter has a friends bday coming up..............mmmmm............... might try that ( when you turn 6 it might be a hit!!). Will post the end result (you are either going to love it or we are going to have sore ribs giggling about it:) - will have to wait and see.
Happy scrappin'
