Show us your Stuff - July Challenge - handwriting. 'School girl'

Hello Everyone. 

I am  really enjoying just scrapping for myself at the moment.
Can you tell?  I don't think I have ever finished so many layouts in a month.
I am usually a slow scrapper who procrastinates way to much.
I can spend 2,3, 4 days even up to a week to complete a layout.
Not sure what has changed, I guess the freedom of not having to scrap to dates, days and times.
I am also making old,  new again by scrapping what is in my rather huge stash.

handwriting make a layout much more special and personal.
I rarely hand-write and if I do its usually just the date.

 have a brand new challenge for the month of July, and this month it has been put together by  Design Team member Kylie Tout...

You can choose to interpret this however you wish, as long as we can clearly see handwriting featured on your layout. (Hidden journalling or only a few words will not count!) In addition, don't forget to include at least one handmade embellishment somewhere on your creation.

When I saw this challenge  at 'Show us your Stuff ,' I thought I would give it a go.... after reading the criteria,....  and looking through my stuff to scrap I found this spelling test that Sarah  did and thought it was just perfect. This is her handwriting in Year 3 - 8 Years old.
It's actually a list of words she practised  at home before school started.

Here is what I made.

[School girl]

 and here is a close up of my handmade embellishment.
The photo frame was made and coloured by Sarah in Year 3....pretty cute isn't it.

Sorry for the poor photo/ photography ...its a  wet and windy day here today.

Your beautiful comments inspire me to keep scrapping and sharing.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave me some love.

Enjoy your day!

This is a very clever take on the challenge and a really great keepsake as I tend to throw out the kids stuff after a few years.. just cant keep it all... so now you have a wonderful layout and all the memories from those times at school too.. love the top that looks like a file... fabulous take on the challenge..

This is so great! I love the idea of using your daughter's handwriting from school years. It's a great way to document a moment. I'm going to do that for my children now. Thank you for the inspiration!

You found the perfect way to preserve some School ephemera and your DD craft. An inspired interpretation of the challenge. I also take eons to create a page, so perhaps by looking at your new found freedom, I may find Mr. Mojo. Gorgeous work :)
