Today I would like to share a layout with a photo from my first year in school. It is a family photo with my two sisters.

Aren't we sisters in their curls and we all have matching white blouses!!! I am wearing one of my favourite jumpers!

Here are some closeups....

I stamped the background with a couple of different Teresa Collins stamps.

I created the hexagon grid with stickers from the Teresa Collins Now & Then line.

All of the papers, stickers & chipboard are Teresa Collins Now & Then.
The doily is Bo-Bunny.
I also added some Tim Holtz Texture Paste to the bottom right corner with a stencil and then added some colour with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

I used the sketch from Stick It Down for inspiration.


I was also inspired by the following challenges:
Wendy's  Sketch N Scrap challenge to use the number 3 on a project.
Scrapping 4 Fun Challenges to use Techniques on a project. I used inking - 3 different kinds, inking the edges and stamping and colouring the texture paste stencil....which is another technique.

Thanks for stopping by! Stay Crafty!!!
