I'm a NEW Design Team Member for Buzz & Bloom and I am SO very happy to be here to inspire you this year. I am a proud mom to 4 kiddos so every now and then you will get to see a peek into my everyday world as I scrap their lives.
I LOVE altering things and for my very first layout I wanted to stick with something simple. I decided to dig into my CB Mini Tokens - Going Places package and alter the car token. I wanted to make it look like a school bus. I did this by using paint and stickles in coordinating colors that matched the rest of my layout (sky blue and yellow). The tokens are engraved and so there are grooves on the token which makes it easy to seperate the paint colors and I found it rather interesting that the colors didn't easily blend because of this. The colors stayed where I wanted them to.
The token was small enough to not make such a big impact on the overall layout but the piece I needed to put it altogether - since the layout was all about the school bus.
The photo's are of my eldest daughter when she was in Kindergarten. Being that she was in Kindergarten she only had a half day of school and she could only catch the school bus coming home. I remember when she couldn't wait to get into the 1st grade just so she could have a full day of school and catch the bus to and from. Catching the school bus made her feel like such a big girl. I remember smiling SO big this day as I watched her walk down those big steps with her short little legs and the laugh I let out once she stopped and posed for a picture. Check out her pose! LOL
