All Change

It's been quite some time since I last did a sketch from Get Picky - I'm not sure why as they have a good variety of sketches, and they are designed for multiple photos, which I mostly do. 

I adapted this sketch to use four photos rather than three, with before and after photos to document the fact that my son's school became an academy this term - not because it was a failing school but because the head wanted to opt out of local authority control (or local authority interference as he saw it).

I used the same stripy paper on the two halves, but rotated it to make a change between the two sides. The papers come from the same collection as I used on the last page as they will be consecutive pages in the album and they are both about the same school. The card is an old piece from Cosmo Cricket (2009) that I have been hoarding. I moved the journalling to the bottom of the layout and I hand-wrote it for once as I wanted it to be directly on the lines of the page and I do not have either an A3 printer or the patience to line up the print with the lines if I had cropped it to A4.

Card - Cosmo Cricket Homework
Paper - Making Memories Fresh Anthology Collection
Letters - Papermania
Zig-Zag Peel-Offs - Anita's
Arrow Peel-Offs - from Stash
