|Story:||We had this cute snapshot of J in kindergarten out for her high school graduation party. As I was putting away some memorabilia from her high school and grade school years, I came across another shot of her engrossed in her studies. I thought they’d make a cute comparative page, and I took the liberty of guessing at the thought which might be common to both shots.|
|Style:||To be honest I was really lazy at this point in using up the last papers in my kit. Here’s what I did: |
* I trimmed one 6 x 12 remnant down a bit and placed it on one half of the corkboard.
* I cut 6 x 4 photo mats for the two 4 x 4 pictures and anchored all those pieces down with a sticker strip.
* I had not touched those little labels or the set of large journaling cards, so I slapped nearly all the former and one of the latter on top the striped paper.
* Then I searched my stash for some finishing touches – a chipboard frame to highlight the main part of her day, an alphabet showing how to print letters (it came with push pins stickers too), and a round school themed journal card embellished with a corrugated girl and a brad.
It was nice that near the end of my kit’s usefulness, I tied enough elements together from the kit and my stash to make a cohesive page. Quick and fun!

Aren't we the silly parents, presuming we have any idea at all what this girl is thinking?
