The Age Of Innocence

My younger DD on a field trip during her nursery year at Nanyang Kindergarten. I love this shot of her sitting with her classmate by the beach, waiting for the excursion bus to come fetch them back to school. And the title just somehow came to mind when I look at the photo!

I mixed papers from K & Co's Hopscotch range and Sassafras Lass' Life Is Beautiful - Vintage Yummy range, as I thought they were very appropriate for the title and theme of the layout.

I used 3D pop-up dots on some of the cut-outs for a little bit of dimension, and also applied stickles to the cut-outs, for some texture. I chose to use Antique Linen for the stickles to enhance the "vintagey" look of the layout.

There is hidden journaling behind the photo. The journal tag is attached with a piece of lace which can be used to pull the tag out. The tag is actually made from a S.E.I. sticker which I pasted onto a transparency and cut out.
