Crazy Hair Day: Splendid

I loved these types of school days when I was in you a chance to goof off and feel like school is a fun place. My kiddos loved it too, however, Tessa kept taming the crazy do I was trying to give her, THE BOYS had NO reservations!!
Without further ado...a peek at my hammy children.

I used Scrapbook Steals MWM Topaz Sketch #3 by Kristina Mackeen as my starting point. I printed 3x3 photos on a piece of 4x6 phot paper and just left the extra white at the bottom to make the pics look like polaroids.

I hand cut each of the hexagons from various papers. The stripes and floral are from the same sheet of Authentique Paper (Splendid). the graph paper is from The Girl's Paperie and the solid blue is Stampin' Up. I didn't want the glue to show through on the architectural trace so I just ran a few stitches here and there to hold them in place.

Here are my tags from Authentique's Splendid collection. I also added a few "Sprinkles" with Stampin' Up's Confetti stamp in Versamark. I distress inked the corner edges of my layout and called it a night...this layout was finished at 1:28am :).

I had these bright white foam Thickers from make them go along with the layout I just used a sponge and some ink to tint them. Then I stamped them with my Wood Grain background stamp from Stampin' Up.
Hope your day is splendid too!!!
