Most Beautiful Girl

Happy new week!! Today is the day that a lot of people started back at work after the summer holidays. The children who live in my province start back at school on Wednesday. So all in all a busy week ahead.

My grandson starts grade one on Wednesday. His school is so amazing because they are allowing grannies and grandpas to spend the first half an hour of the "first day of school" with the moms, dads and little ones. We will definitely be going along ~ armed with cameras of course.

I scrapped a beautiful LO today using Sketch #38 from Sketchabilities . The photos are of my granddaughter Claudia. They are such amazing pictures. She is so deep in thought ~ would love to know what was going on in her tiny little mind! I changed the photos to black and white and used My Minds Eye papers that I have had for a while.This is how my LO turned out.

I used plain ivory flowers and added some stickles and Kaisercraft pearls as flower centres. The corner rub-on is also from Kaisercraft. Border punch is Martha Stewart.

The Friday challenge over at Frosted Designs was to use three or more photos, so I am entering this LO into that challenge as well.

Thank you for looking. Have a wonderful week.
