Off to School!

My latest reveal is up at A Cherry On Top today! This new line from Fancy Pants was just what I needed to scrap Q's first day of Kindergarten pictures. Can't believe she is this big already! I am enjoying the one-on-one time with the baby during the day, though. It does help she's excited to go to school every day. I feel so bad for the moms with the crying kids each morning!

Here's her supplies all laid out around her while we were getting her backpack ready. For some reason, school supplies get me all excited. I even had fun sharpening the pencils. I'm weird like that.
I layered some of the cards from the cards sheet to make up the journaling spot, then used a lot of the chipboard embellishments around it. I love that star paper, too- it was what I added to the page when I thought I was all done, but it still needed a little something extra.

Here's the big first day! I love the shot that Daddy got of us walking in together. I'm sure in a year she won't want to hold my hand like that anymore, but I hope not. ;) I love the buttons in this line, so I used a few here & there. I changed the title area around no less than five times and I was finally happy with the apple sticker from the Chalk Stickers sheet.

Some flashcards were sent home for learning sight words through the year. To keep them all together, I made a little box, using a box of 24 crayons as a template. A flash card from the Design Elements pack was the perfect fit for the front of the box. Love those Jenni Bowlin Chalkboard alphas, too!

And I also found that in addition to storing lots of little stuff, my library card catalog is also the perfect backdrop for school-type photos. :) Have a great week everyone!
