Back to School 2011 Layout

My little girl starts school on Tuesday. Practice Preschool to be exact. I'm excited for her. She's been asking to go to school every day since her last day of ECFE (early childhood family education) last fall. I'm also more nervous than I ever thought I would be. I just keep reminding myself that practice preschool is just about getting used to a structured learning environment and having fun.

To preserve her big day I made this layout.


The patterned paper, from Creative imaginations, came as a 12x12 sheet with all these rectangles individually decorated. So my first idea was to cut them apart and add some photo mats. To add visual interest I inked all the edges, popped four of the pieces and added doodling.


The Details:
ki Memories School Days hip chip
Creative Imaginations Preschool paper and cardstock stickers
Bazzill classic blue
Recollections red
Zig Millennium pure black pen
Marcella by K black dye ink
Pop Dots
Cricut Jubilee cartridge (runt feature, 1/2")

Challenges:
