100 days of school

Tassy's school celebrated the 100th day of school today. The kids were encouraged to wear or bring 100 of something to school. So last night we (read "I") pinned 100 safety pins to Tassy's school jumper. It's a little Michael Jackson, a little Sgt Peppers, lol. She was very proud that everyone in her class thought she looked "so cool"!
Tassy and I went to the ballet in May. We weren't allowed to take photos so I downloaded these photos off the internet (that's why they're tiny). I used my blog entry about the ballet as the journalling. Thanks Moi for the Date card and little stamped shape and thanks Helen for the rest of the cluster! And YAY I used a few old products (Chatterbox paper and Heidi Swapp rub-ons) alongside some of my new purchases (velvet Thickers and scalloped paper).

I love what you do with products - your mix of old and new! The layout looks great and thank you for the mention. ;) Nice to know I can do my bit for lovely layouts!!!
The safety pins was a top idea!!! Congrats on 100 days Tassy!

OMG, 100 safety pins? "Bring Bring".. "ah yes, it's the 80s phoning, we'd like our style back!!" HELLO! I'm sure some of Alicia's 80s clothes sported safety pins. Or are you trying to embed a little Goth-style in Tassy?! You are too funny. I guess that's better than the kid who stuck 100 stickers to his face.. what a weirdo (I bet there was that kid right?! Lol)
Love the layout.. I love that massive jewel! Beautiful!
