So I finally got my hands on the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese stamp set and couldn't wait to start playing with it. Seriously...that Polaroid style stamp is so stinkin cute! I had high hopes of doing a layout with the kids' pictures from the first day of school this year only to discover that I didn't have any clear pictures from that day. Really...what setting did I have that darn camera on anyhow??? I'm thinking I'll be doing a re-enactment with the kids so I can get good pictures - I'm sure my teenager will love that (wink!). Anyhow...I was set on doing a first day of school layout - it's hard to change my mind when it's set on something. I had to go back into the picture archives to find some that I hadn't already scrapped which took me back to 2009...the first year all three boys were even in school. This is what I came up with.
I started receiving the Studio Ali Edwards stamps in July and I've been watching a lot of Nichol Magouirk's videos over at Two Peas in a Bucket for inspiration on how to use them on my layouts and I love how I can create my own custom embellishments. Besides...I love Ali's handwriting. Now if we could only convince Kristina Werner to make stamp sets with her beautiful handwriting!
