Let's take a stroll...


"Let's take a stroll around the neighbourhood..." I said to my niece on Saturday.
"Yay!" she beamed excitedly.

Yep. It is really easy to get a 6 year old excited about a stroll, with the possibility of stopping at a playground when she's been watching her brothers play on the tablets all day long. *winks*

She paid attention as I named the plants we saw along the way and was proud of herself for identifying them correctly. And of course, she was happy to pose for photos. :)

I was really pleased with the amount of paper scraps on this layout....even though it has hardly made a noticeable dent in the scrap pile. *LOL*

I love adding dimensional elements on my layouts but keep them relatively flat for easy storage.

 Playing along with Stuck?! Sketches.

P/s: How are you doing with reducing your scrap pile???

Omgoodness, this is SO stinkin' adorable, Yvonne! I love the mish mash of elements on here. I was scanning and absorbing all the details, and then spied the little city scene on the right side, with the giant fruit behind it, and it was such a happy discovery! The way you combine elements to build a scene always tickles me. I am loving the dimensional elements you added here, too. The little wood frame around the face, the mix of trims and crochet on the side... such great touches!
