Sophia Layout: Lucy's Summer Day
This was the first day that our son Sam went to Kindergarten, back in September 2009. Lucy missed her big brother. When the time came, we waited outside for the bus to bring him home. So Lucy passed the time eating chocolate chip cookies and picking dandelions. It was a nice afternoon.
This layout was created using the CTMH Sophia papers. They are now retired, but I'm trying to use my scrappy stash! The title letters and blooms were colored with a spray pen containing a mix of water, blush reinker, and pearl paint. I love the sheen this technique adds. Since the papers are so bright and cheerful, I chose to color the embellishments with the lightest color, and left them all the same color. This way they highlight the photos, instead of taking away from them.
