Growing UP - New Layout

Happy Sunday my scrappy friends! My Kansas bestie is coming to visit next weekend for my birthday and we have a weekend of scrapping planned! I thought I would gear up a bit. This is a layout of Maddie's first day of school (Mother's Day Out), she is only 2!  LOL. She was so excited and loves school, which makes my heart sing. 



I used the May kit from Embellish It. I love these club kits as they are so simple, yet I can still add my own spin. 

For this layout I played along with the Sketches4All pink challenge. There is definitely a lot of pink in this layout. In fact, I thought it was too much pink and tried swapping out the background color, but in the end stuck with the pink.

I also played along with S.W.A.T. Drill #19 Gobble Til You Wobbble, this drill was to use a picture of food or a recipe. I thought Maddie's first school lunch was just the photo to help document this 1st day event.

Finally, I played along with Colorful Creations - Nov. Stash Challenge, to create a double page layout and at least 5 photos. This one was easy for me as almost every layout I create is a double page with lots of photos.

Here are a couple of closeups:




Materials used: paper - Echo Park and Simple Stories; journaling block - Simple Stories; stickers - Echo Park; Brads - Simple Stories; letter stickers - October Afternoon, Echo Park, Thickers, and The Paper Studio; ink - CTMH; stamp - 7 Gypsies; ribbon - unknown.

Thanks for visiting!
