MMD Divas 6th Grade Page

OHHHH so much fun with this page.

I am nostalgic and made my kids pose in front of the Black Eyed Susans for their first day of school photos. Those flowers just kinda just grew along side my step. I think they hitched a ride with a hosta that I brought with me from the last garden.

Those were always blooming at the old house and we took many first day of school photos in front of them, sometimes even taking some to the teacher.

This page was a heck of a lot of fun. Heather has a new sketch up at Miracles Momma Designs and I used the right half of it, turned sideways and zoomed in!

My favorite part was interpreting that scallopy boarder. I considered getting out some punches and then came up with the idea of using up some of the large amount of white buttons I had and some banners with butterflies! Add in some liquid pearls and I'm feeling all impressed with myself! do you like that outfit Lexi is wearing? Aunt Jennifer and Lexi picked out via texts while Aunt Jennifer was in the Justice Store. Talk about shopping from your phone. All I had to do was just pay for it!

And BTW, if you are interested in adding features to your photos like filters and all that fancy stuff, Picasa has added a whole bunch to their free program. I started using Picasa years ago and for something that is free it just keeps getting better!

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday and scrappin!
