Leave the Nest

I just love this photo of my children off to school, this was Bellamy's first day and they all look so young and fresh faced. I wanted to do something special with it, but it was the only photo I had, and also in Black & White as the uniform is a hard colour to work with. So I did a layout for Down Under Direct, and used the new Foliage 2 dies, which I just love and have used on every layout since getting them. I have also used Bitty Blossoms, which you can make up as a rose as normal, or by cutting them from brown cardstock and allowing them to spiral, down the skewer, you can make a neat pine cone. Just use hot glue to keep in place. Of course the kids are a lot older now, and looking back on photos like this are why we scrapbook lol


  1. fabulous layout Sue, love that photo too, so great to look back on those photos :)

  2. Sue - this is amazing! I love the details - the nest, feathers, pinecones and flowers. I also love the way you've used these to frame everything.
