Student Footwear

My youngest daughter, Karen, loves to hunt for clothes in Charity Shops. In the past she has managed to root out bargain items from Karen Millen and Topshop, among others. Her latest find at Easter was a brand new pair of Converse trainers (her favourite) in pink, and they've hardly been off her feet since!
Looking at her most recent photos, with her wearing the aforementioned trainers, I spotted that her male University friends also favour brightly coloured shoes, and there was the idea for my layout.
Here's the work in progress..........

.........and here's the finished page.

I used Papermania scalloped cardstock, free papers from Scrapbook Magazine and a sheet of K&Co flowered paper to make a bright, Spring background. A few buttons and ribbon, a quotation from Oscar Wilde, and plenty of doodling completed the page.
Call me old-fashioned....and I know you will....Karen loves wearing her trainers the way she does, but they look to me as if they should be worn as boots!


  1. This is such a lovely, colourful page! Thanks for visiting our blog hop, particularly so as it meant I discovered your blog - I've really enjoyed browsing your posts :-)

  2. I think they are boots, aren't they? It's a fab page, hope she likes it!!

  3. Yeah see, old fashioned or not...I would assume they are boots, what do we know - don't get me started on the jeans that the boys wear belted under their bottoms..ugh. Great LO Ann, love the colours, love that you've captured an 'everyday' thing that thye would only look back on otherwise!

  4. This is sooo lovely. I adore the buttons (I'm very into buttons lately...)

  5. I love that colour combination! pinks and greens are my favourite!

    thatis a great page...i too like scraping about my daughter....they give us so much inpsiration!!!! it's a good thing we had them!

    ciao bella!
