A bit of Graphic 45 from Your Scrapbook Stash


It's so hard to watch your child go through some hard times. Especially at this tender age. Elementary school can be so difficult. Kids can be mean, teasing, and awkward. My precious daughter is trying to learn how to let go of the ridiculous, not hold onto the mean, not embrace being angry, and avoid being self-conscious. I so hope that together we can fight this battle one day at a time... because she is so full of life and passion and drama, and I don't want any of that taken from her. 

Some close-ups...



I used Steampunk Debutante papers, Pleated ribbon, My Little Shoebox alpha stickers, and lots of Shimmerz (Spritz in Olive Branch and Treasured Hymn, and Blingz in Spiced Cider)
