F is for First Day of School

Here are my two pages for Audrey Hernandez' Alphabetica journal. I had a total blast doing these pages, everything came together as if magic was involved! I found the photograph below at the Sandwich Antique Market a couple of weeks ago. The green cardboard letters above were "borrowed" from a bag of ephemera that Jane got at Sandwich. The alphabet ribbon was part of a present from my Mom. I had the background ruled school scrapbook paper in my paper stash and then I just got out some varoius stamps to make the background. I bought the lone September stamp out of a collection of the months of the year because that is the month my Grandma was born. Oh, and below the Kodak Snapshots paper is from a book of School Memories that I got in Sandwich and the paper right underneath the photo is from a 1928 school notebook that I got on Ebay. Magic!
Below are two of the pages that Audrey did in her book. I just love her style so much!!! I would love to be a fly on her wall and just watch while she creates! I took the book to work today to show my friends there and they were all totally impressed with the book and loved everything in it so far! So, Audrey, Jane, Trish, and Lynne you were stars today!

Crayon Dreams
Sugar and Spice!
Lastly, I just ran across a most impressive blogf and Etsy shop chock full of goodness, run, don't walk, right over to Sepia Art Studio and then click on her Etsy shop! Amazing!!! I had to order a couple of things....and talk about reasonable prices!!! My favorite thing on there is at the top of the blog....Fairy Wands!!! I really want to try to make something like that! I ordered one too as I probably won't be able to approximate her total wonderfulness!
