My children were both in their school plays this year. Unfortunately the lighting and my distance from the stage didn't result in the best photos I have ever taken but I definitely wanted the occasions saved in my scrapbook so I decided to make quick and easy pages with minimal embellishments.
These pages were so quick to put together, I used a 12 x 12 piece of Brilliant Blue and Barely Banana, 2 A4 sheets of the same colour (I didn't trim them at all, I just attached them to the page with an even border on three sides - it is a bit hard to see in The Babes in Toyland one because the scanner I used isn't quite 12 inches wide), and 2 A4 sheets of Basic Black that I cut into quarters - it is so much more economical to cut 4 mats from one A4 sheet and crop the small amount needed to make them fit than to only get 2 mats from an A4 sheet and lots of scraps.
I hand drew the Truffular Trees on Only Orange, Yoyo Yellow and Glorious Green and covered them with dazzling diamonds. In the Babes in Toyland Layout I drew the elf shoe on Glorious Green and just cut it out.
The Lorax Title is actually a photo I took of the banner - I just cut each of the letters out and attached them to the layout. The Babes in Toyland title is done with my handy dandy Pure and Simple Alphabet Upper.
I have blacked out everyones faces except for my own children.
Devon was a Truffular Tree and a narrator in his schools version of The Lorax.
Natasha was a elf and kindly volunteered me to make 9 pairs of elf shoes in three different sizes. I don't quite know what this says about me but I had plenty of the right shade of green sweatshirting to make them. Thanks to the internet I found a pattern that I could adjust to fit everyone! By the time I had finished them everyone was used to me saying "Have I told you lately how much I hate elf shoes!".
