Year 5

This is the first time I've made a page from a Sketch at Scrap 365 but this one caught my eye and I added it to my challenge list.

I modified the sketch to scrap a row of identical photos of my daughter which came from the school photographer a few years ago. They originally had extra printing below them and the sheet was intended to be cut apart as bookmarks, but we never used them for that purpose. 

I normally scrap school photos with letter or number paper so I picked an alphabet print from Graphic 45 and then papers from Crate Paper to complement it. I really wanted to use some red letter stickers from Basic Grey, but I had used too many already, so I cut around the outside edges on the backing sheet to give me white letters with red edges. 

Part way through making this page I realised that I could incorporate this week's team challenge at UKScrappers. This was set by 'crafty72' and she gave us five requirements - use a black and white photo, frame the photo, use bling, use ink or mists and use no more than two flowers. Obviously I failed with the black and white photo, but I have the other items and will still score some points for my team this week.

Letters - Basic Grey Blitzen ('Negatives'), Basic Grey Curio
