How Times Change

I found this photo of my siblings and I a few years ago and just knew I had to scrapbook it! It's taken a while because I don't have any school themed products. It's funny to see how cute we were almost 20 years ago. This was the only year we all attended the same school together.  

Has anyone else had one of those LOs where they think it's finished but they're not quite happy with it? This was one of them for me. I thought I'd finished on Wednesday but it just didn't seem enough. You can see the original version below. I picked it up again this morning and decided to work it over a bit more. I think it pops a bit better now.

This LO was inpsired by the sketch over at ScrapFIT.

Bird is the Word has 'Change' as one of their current words.

June 123 has the following criteria - word: change; colour: blue; technique: washi tape. I've had to create my own washi tape again since I don't actually own any, but I think the masking tape with the blue number stamp looks really cute. :)


  1. Yep, I've had heaps of layouts that I thought was finished then thought it wasn't quite right so added or changed things. Sometimes, walking away from it & coming back the next day, you seem to see it differently...well that's how it happens for me.

    Such a fun school layout...with a super cute pic. The added bits of red definitely help to lift the layout...great work!

  2. Such a wonderful LO of this meaningful older photo. You rocked this layout and challenge!! BTW, reworking a "finished" LO happens to me all the time. Thanks for working out with us at ScrapFIT! ~ Blessings
