New SOUS Sketch-Back to School !

It's another Friday and I have a great new sketch to showcase by our own Sandi Clarkson-go check it out here: Sandi's September 28 Sketch . I thought it was perfect for those back to school pics! Here's my take on the sketch:
 
This is my daughter in last year's first day of school pic. I combined Prima's yummy new Romance Novel with the older,but still yummy, Almanac and Printery. The felt flowers are Clearance Aisle Jolees that have been waiting for a home. The edges of the PP are water distressed and I edged the base paper with some more vintage store lace.
The Romance Novel papers come with cut out packets. I though this was great for including my journaling to my daughter, that she can read when she unearths the mountain of Layouts I will have created by the time she is 18! The various chippies are also Prima.
I coated this cute Fabscraps diecut with terra cotta paste and sprinkled in some glitter dust while it was still wet. After it dried, I edged it in black chalk and gave them some Onyx Perfect Pearl eyes.
Hope this gave you some ideas! Can't wait to see what you create!
Have a Blessed day, Tracey
