{a New Layout!}

I have a layout to share today, made with the January add-on kit from the Paper Bakery. That's my Mom in the photo, on her first day of school in California, after moving from Arkansas in 1940.
I used my Martha Stewart fringe scissors (again!) and added kraft tissue paper to the heart banner and made a flower embellishment with it too.
This is the only school related pic I have of my Mom, up until her high school graduation photos, so I sure am happy I have this one!
 
Well, a new week is upon us, enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by.
