Scrap Our Stash: ABC 123 Blog Hop

Welcome to Scrap Our Stash ABC ~123 Blog Hop

You should have arrived here from JENNI'S blog.
If not, click HERE and head back to the beginning of the hop. You will not want to miss any of the designer’s awesome inspiration and/or the details on how to enter into the SOS prize drawings!  

The design team was challenged to create a layout inspired by our choice of one of three sketches and our choice of alphas (stash items) to include on our layouts.
Here is my layout inspired by Sketch #2 and using stash items: U - Upcylcle and V- Vellum
                                             
Because it was a back to school challenge, I wanted to continue with the theme so I decided to do another page for our family heritage album and chose this picture of my mum in 5th Grade (then called 5th class).
For my upcycled elements I used some old book pages I had in my mixed media stash - a page from Alice In Wonderland and an old atlas. The map page was quite bright so I used the vellum to tone it down a bit.  I also dug deep into the archives and found some old OA school theme stickers from several years ago and the chipboard pencil from Cosmo Cricket. 
And those of you who know me will have picked up that I am a carbon copy of my mother (except she got the skinny genes!!! LOL) 

And here is the sketch:
