Year 11

I have lots of holiday photographs to scrapbook from two weeks away this summer, but sometimes sorting through the number of pictures that I take on holiday and choosing which ones to scrap can be overwhelming.

I've taken an easier option by making this page instead, using a single photo because that's all I have. My daughter's school take formal photos of all the pupils in Year 7 (age 11 when they start at the school) and Year 11 (age 16 just before some of them leave) and, as the title says, this is her Year 11 photo.

I picked the 1 September sketch from Stuck?! Sketches and used the free 'Sketchy Circles' cut file from Scrapbook and Cards Today for the circles.

The 'done, done & done' die-cut fitted with the theme of finishing school, and I matted it on a darker one which used the US spelling of colour. I'd have liked something similar for the title cluster, but the pack didn't have anything suitable. It did have a days of the week piece that was too big so I copied that idea with letter stickers for weekdays.
