Blast from the Past 2

Aug 3, 2012

Here is a lay­out I did in 2005 doc­u­ment­ing Ans­ley going to her first “Dad­dy Daugh­ter Dance.” This lay­out actu­al­ly got picked up for pub­li­ca­tion and can be found in the JoAnn ScrapEssen­tials Idea Book Vol. 2. If you have this idea book this lay­out is fea­tured on page 51. You can see I still love to use glossy accents and iri­des­cent glit­ter. That is what I used to accent the jour­nal­ing strips.

I remem­ber every day at school dur­ing lunch, we would get to choose a fla­vor of ice cream, and would be giv­en one of these cups and a lit­tle wood­en spoon. We were all so eager to eat the ice cream the threat of splin­ters...
