On the Road

The theme for this week's challenge over at Gingersnap Creations is On the Road.

I started off thinking about transport and cars and briefly toyed with an idea using the Old Jalopy die by Tim Holtz but then my mind started to come in on the idea of the road of life and this photo lent itself perfectly to this theme.

It was taken in 2004 of the children ready to go to their new school. They all look so small and I don't know where the time has gone!

I created a road using Dylusions sprays and Glimmer mists with a variety of masks.  The hearts were free cut from my test spray page and the line of stars was the mask I cut to use in the road so nothing was wasted!

The tag is hard to read in the photo but it says "So the day arrives when they stand in their new uniform ready to start out ON THE ROAD to gaining an education and growing UP.  An important moment for us as parents and for them.

I'm really pleased with the simplicity of this page and hope you like it too.  :)
