Hello scrapbooking friends! I'm so excited to share this layout that I created for the CSI Design Team with you. One reason for my joy is the story behind the scrapbook page.
As most of you know, I am a retired elementary teacher. One of the greatest joys of teaching is witnessing the positive outcome of a former student. In this case, my husband and I were able to spend a little time with my student Robert, his wife and baby daughter. What a beautiful family they are and I enjoy being kept in the loop through social media! Here, we were able to reconnect in real life!
Now, back to the scrapbooking....
On the background paper I used modeling paste and a honeycomb stencil to represent the sweetness of parenting.
It seemed perfectly natural to use gold seedlings to represent the sunshine this sweet baby girl brings to her parents and grandparents!
Techniques used are three dimensional work, texturizing, paper tearing, painting, heat embossing, and stamping.
My journaling reads, "This baby girl brings sunshine and sweetness wherever she goes! Her daddy was a wonderful student in a third grade class of mine and I know she will be a great student like her mommy and daddy. Bloom, sweetie."
