Scrapstuffz has a really interesting inspirational picture for March. When I first saw this I immediately thought about coloured pencils for school and then school in general and that flowed into photographs I had taken of my children doing school work related activities.
The picture I eventually settled on was one of my daughter completing school work during a visit to her Grandmother. Her work load was so high in her final year at school she simply could not afford to sit around doing nothing so even on these rare family visits she would take it all with her and while we visited she would study.
I pulled as many of the colours as I could from the inspiration picture for my page and a small heart. All my patterned paper has come from my box of scraps which is why I have also included this layout for Challenge #183 on Lasting Memories which is all about scraps.
