Making the Grades (Little Yellow Bicycle The Escape)

Scrapping school pictures is not at the top of my list. I'm never really in love with the picture itself because it never shows Alexa's "true" personality. I managed to procrastinate on this one since September. What inspired me to finally scrap it? Alexa received a post card in the mail congratulating her on making High Honor Roll with Distinction for the first quarter. I had an aha (!) moment and realized I could kill two birds with one stone by scrapping the school picture WITH the post card. Yes, that would work!

Turns out that Little Yellow Bicycle's Escape collection, paired with some of their Head of the Class stickers, did the trick. I added in some pearls and rhinestones to make it a bit more "girly".

How do you handle scrapping school pictures? If you have any examples to share, I'd love to see! :)
