Rachel- School Days

Today is our last day of our school themed week. Rachel closes it out by doing a different take on our theme. She created a layout based on her feelings of being in college. Her journaling reads, " Why is it that people always say that school days are the best days of your life? I used to hate that! They said it even more once I went to Uni. The ultimate 'big school'. I guess it wasn't until my final year that I realised they might have a point. I'd love to go back. .... me in 'my space' Manchester Met Uni. Illustration with Animation."

We have some exciting new things planned! Tomorrow, we will start a Scenic Route spotlight! We have drool worthy projects from our talented designers featuring the newest lines- Sonoma, Surprise, and Appleton!
