Sophie's Personality Bag :)

This is one of those LOs that evolved from the story that I wanted to tell. I was initially going to use one photo of my daughter but this set of 4 just screamed to be scrapped together and really do reflect her happy, fun-loving personality right now. The story that I wanted to record was about Sophie's 'Personality Bag'. Her teacher came up with this lovely idea and each student was assigned a day in which they had to bring a bag containing 5 items that were precious to them and reflected 'who they are' right now. Sophie took this assignment so seriously and the items that she but in her bag were just perfect  - Sylvia, her favourite soft toy, her ballet shoes, her favourite porcelein doll, the scrap book that she has made herself and a puzzle book that she loves to do at bedtime with daddy.
I wanted to add lots of journaling to this page so I decided to use one large block to explain the assignment and five smaller journaling spots to record Sophie's choices for her bag. I used up lots of scraps of October Afternoon and Crate paper and added matching journaling spots from both manufacturers. I added lots of small embellishments for interest and tried to keep my items clustered so that the LO did not become overly 'busy' (i'm not sure if I managed that one or not lol).
The current word over at 'Bird is the Word is 'Share' so I thought that this one would b perfect for that theme.
