Vacation by Sandy

Time flies doesn't it? June is here and for Singaporean school children it's vacation time. I pulled together hot orange and sunny yellow elements from So Cal and scrapped a photo of my nephew taken on the last day of school.

Originally the background in the photo is bluish-green. I eliminated this distracting problem by printing the photo in black-and-white, which produced a bonus of turning the background grey to tie-in with the ash cardstock.

I did use a couple of extra items on this layout. Two small Sunny Skip calender rectangles from  February's Lady Lane kit and a month label from my stash.

It seemed appropriate that I pick up some knotting know-how, as there are more than 45 yards of twine in my kits. On this tag are two half-hitches which formed a secure binding.

cheers, Sandy
