School Days

“The days are long, but the years are short.” ~ Gretchen Rubin

 How true. 
Oh so true. 

I took the photo on the layout below in December 2008. That was the December before Nidhi started Primary 1. *sigh* I blink and she's done with primary school. All six years of it. That hit me hard, for some reason. I think it's because she's my youngest, she's my baby. 

I created this layout for Patricia's I {Puffy} Heart You challenge.

Puffy stickers! Who can resist them? Not me. I've been a fan of puffy stickers since I was 7! Actually, I think it was earlier, but my first memory of puffy stickers, you know, sharing and trading with friends, was from when I was in Grade 1. :)

For this layout, I decided to go simple to showcase the Daily Flash Milk Money Pillow Puffs. I also didn't have a lot to say. The two sentences on there summed up how I felt when I picked her up from school the last day of her exam. How perfect are those puffy stickers for this end of primary school layout? I love that while they're cute-sy, when used on a clean layout like this one, they make an impact. Don't you think so? I added some Pop Drops, a piece from this pack of Flash Blubs and stamped the 'School Days' title in soft grey.
