No Office Job for Me!

A while ago, I posted a "before" photo of my kindergarten classrooms and promised to upload the "after" photos.  Well, it took me awhile, but I finally got a chance last week to do a little scrapping.  


I decided to use October Afternoon's, 9 to 5 collection.  I love this collection, but have had a hard time figuring how to use it.

Then I starting looking at the motifs and images in the collection and thought, "I am NOT an office-job kind of girl!"   And that is the direction I decided to go in.
I love being active. challenged, and creative.  I am SO glad I am not confined to a desk in a gloomy office building.  It makes me happy to walk into my colorful classroom every day.  My surroundings are bright and cheerful amd my little "co-workers" are the same.  I feel very blessed to do what I do.

Creative Scrappers Sketch #226

It is reveal day over at Creative Scrappers!  Be sure to stop by the blog and check out all the gorgeous layouts inspired by sketch #226!  

Here is my take on the sketch:

This is my little sweetie, Emery, celebrating her 1st Birthday, with family.  I used a mixture of Basic Grey and October Afternoon.  Love this color combination! 
This sketch was a lot of fun to work with and left room for interpretation.  I love that in a sketch! <3 p="p">

Why not give this sketch a try?
