A Note from Jenny
This is one of my favorite photos from this year. It’s the last day of elementary school for both boys, so the idea of them taking flight came into my head. With that in mind I selected cloud paper, then pulled embellishments from my embellishment basket where I put new stuff and from embellishments lying loose on the table next to me. I like yellow on aqua, so I dug out some old Thickers for the title, adding pink letter stickers for contrast. Finally, I journaled around the photo in the white space to finish off the page. It took me about a half hour to make this page, but I’m really happy with the result, though it took every ounce of willpower not to pull out the sewing machine to stitch on the page.
