It Is Elementary

(Photo by LifeTouch)

It's no secret that I dislike scrapping school portraits but I developed an even bigger aversion to them when Alexa started choosing her own background (which was in 3rd grade). LOL! I'm all for dressing her in colors that are complementary to one of the standard, solid backdrops that are offered. Alexa, on the other hand, has different ideas. This year she chose a psychedelic, rainbow-like backdrop and I had no clue what to do with it. So what did I do? When I wasn't staring at the picture, trying to figure out how to scrap it, I hid it at the bottom of the pile of pics waiting to be scrapped (along with the class photos from 3rd and 4th grade, LOL!) That's what any other scrapper would do, right?

Yesterday I had an "aha" moment and realized I should use Doodlebug's Feeling Groovy collection (with a bit of Jillibean Soup mixed in for good measure) and be done with it. Yay! I'm now done...until next year. :)

Oh, and the clock embellishment (cut from a flash card) was a sweet RAK from Connie. I was so happy to be able to use it! :)

If you've scrapped a school picture without using school-related papers, I'd love to see. Thanks so much!
