Practical Scrappers On Trend: Gold

I'll be honest with you, I didn't think I was going to take part in this Practical Scrappers challenge. Gold is simply not my thing. But then I received my Hello Today February kit from Scrapbook Circle and it came with a great sheet of gold on kraft specialty paper from Studio Calico.

So here I give you my layout, 31 Months:

Wondering why I came up with this title? I had this picture of my two oldest with their paternal grandfather from 2010. I loved it, but I didn't know what to say in my journaling. Then I read the daily prompt on Mojo Hunting, which was to use our number stickers. It inspired me to write about the time since he passed away in 2011.

I am entering this in the February 1st Challenge on the Stuck?! Sketches blog. Make sure you also check out my pal Eliane's take on the same sketch: Rébi cachée.

Papers: Studio Calico (Atlantic), Chickaniddy (Date Night), October Afternoon (Daily Flash Snapshots)
Tags: Scrapbook Circles printables, Scrapbook Circle Exclusive Tag Set, Elle's Studio
