Finally my 2002 album is finished, although it morphed into two albums along the way. I'm going to scrap a few random photos before getting stuck into a new project. The first one is an older school picture of my niece that was lying around loose, and needed to be scrapped for its own safety. I'm not sure exactly how old it is but I guess she is seven or eight in the photo and she's 13 now. 

I picked Sketch-n-Scrap's Sketch #84 from 1 July for my page, but I moved some of the elements around. The two photos on the right became one, and I dropped the singe photo. I also moved the strip across the top down to the bottom, and layered it over the triangle of patterned paper in the corner.

I try to use letter or number paper for school pages, and chose numbers this time. Most of the other papers came out of my scraps box and the apple die-cut is ancient stash that has finally found a home.
