Hi Pebbles friends! It is Leanne here today, sharing a fun Teacher Appreciation layout using the Pebbles Inc Sunshiny Days collection. I thought I would go “big” on a smaller layout using large alphabet letters. I also got my youngest son to do the journaling!
I love the bright colors from this summer loving collection, but I also know how versatile these patterned papers can be, so I converted the use of bright, fresh color to interpret elementary basics.
Using the WeRMemoryKeepers mini Alphabet Punch board, I created my letters for the background detail.
I didn’t cover the entire cardstock base, as I knew where my photo placement needed to be, so I saved myself the extra effort of creating letters. I mounted the photo onto extra patterned paper, then adhered it to the page.
Using the die cut ephemera pieces, I asked my seven year old to write some journaling directly onto the card. As the photo is about a list of names he had practiced writing, he kept his journaling relatively short | “I can write” + Name & Age! *grin*
Next, I then tucked the journaling card between the layers of patterned paper and added a few die cut embellishments.
While this layout isn’t in a typical Teacher Appreciation format, I love that I’ve documented his school boy hand writing. Of course, his writing stems directly from what he has learned from his dedicated teachers.
Thanks for joining me here today..x
