Converse...All Star

 Have you something in your scrap stash that you've saved for years and years?

Well last night I was trying to work out how long I've had this chipboard Converse boot. The boot came on a pair of converse boots I brought Col years and years ago....he only wore them once or twice and eventually sold them on Ebay.  So I reckon the boot must be at least 8 years old, if not older.
 A little paint, splash of mist, some jean fabric and some scraps of paper and this is what I came up with.
Jack picked some Converse All Stars in the summer holidays and they were a perfect match for the boot I'd been harboring all these years. I used the chipboard circle for the title and journaled about Jacks determination to lace up the shoes even though the laces were so short there was hardly anything to grab to tie.

Thank you again for all your wonderful comments on the post below. I'll be sure to share my very first DT layout with you very very soon.
