1st day of preschool layout

Yes, I know this one is really late. My daughter was 3.5 years old in this picture. She is now 6. But those big event, typical scrapbooking pages have never been my thing. I like the little stories that go with everyday life much better. Did I ever mention that my son's 1st year album isn't done yet? Yeah. And he's 4 now. My daughter's 1st year album is ALMOST complete. Just lack the first birthday layout to finish it up. You see a pattern here? :)

Anyway, on to the more interesting aspect of this layout. That flourishy heart. I knew I wanted something flourishy in that corner. I grapped the first thing in my blank chipboard/grungeboard drawer and this is what I withdrew (this is the picture after I applied black copics and fruit punch stickles that is):

And this is the beauty of grungeboard. I can use my copics to color it, then apply stickles to it. Then after all is dried, bend it into any shape my heart desires. Even a heart! :) Here's a close up of the heart:

Papers are close to my heart (notebook), grungeboard from Tim Holtz, chipboard "1" from Heidi Swapp, fruit punch stickles from Ranger. That's it, as easy as could be.
Thanks for visiting!


  1. What a great page! I love all the elements you used. I had never heard of grungeboard. Is it thick like chipboard? The whole layout has a vintage-like feel to me, especially the way you did the three pictures, looks to me like two are black/white and then larger one colored. Very, very nice

  2. Great page, Cindy. I haven't scrapped any of the big events of my girls yet. I like the way you turned that grungeboard swirl into a heart. Clever idea!
