The Paper Variety: Challenge 4

Woohoo, another one! I am so excited to do this challenge! Challenge Number 4 from the Paper Variety was to do a "scraplift" challenge from one of the design team members. I chose to go with Shawn's Design and Layout idea! I have to agree that I absolutely loooovveee 2 page layouts, I feel like I can show more phots also and tell more of a story!

This is my 2 page LO of my older daughers Desiree's first day of school. We tried to put her into kindergarten when she was 4, but the school would not let us! So when she turned 5, she was more than ready to start her journey into education! My favorite photo is the one I shot of her first walking into the school. I will never forget her confidence and excitement, and I can only hope she will carry that with her throughout the rest of her school years!

This was a fairly simple layout, I used pattern paper from the Making the Grade paper stack as well as various school-related stickers. I had fun making this one, but it sure brings back a lot of memories and sadness from that first day :( Anywho, thanks for stopping by!
