'What a Hoot' goes back to school

My son, Boyd, who is featured in these Year 1 photos, is now 18! It's so very true what they say, time really does fly when you're having fun! I can still vividly remember him at 5 years of age.  He was so incredibly energetic and inquisitive!  He had a thousand questions about every conceivable topic!  He loved to read, write, play in his sandpit and hang out with his little brother.  Time hasn't changed him greatly.  He is still an absolute joy to be around, still incredibly inquisitive (mostly about science these days) and is a great friend to his brother, Perrin.  

One of my greatest joys in life is scrapbooking our family's precious memories.  What an absolute delight it was to place these adorable photos of my little boy onto beautiful pages to keep as a special reminder of his first year at school.  

Because the photos themselves were filled with colour, it seemed fitting to marry them with the more subdued colours of Chalk It Up and Seaside.  I have used my new favourite Alphabet Stamp Set, 'Handwritten Print' for the title and included the darling owl from the August Stamp of the Month, 'What a Hoot' as a playful and very colourful embellishment. I have finished the page with Gold Shimmer Trim and Gold Sequins because there is always room for a little bling!

This double-page layout comes from Pattern 7 in Make It From Your Heart: Volume 2.
