Most of you know that I love a good bright and bold layout. One of my favorite paper lines for this recently has been Basic Grey's Lime Rickey collection. I just had to buy it even though it seemed a little young for my kids. BUT.... when I finally sat down and opened it I was inspired by the bright colors to make a Back to School layout of Paige.
When Paige went into Grade One she was quite nervous, although she didn't let me know with words. Her body language said it all. When I dropped her off and watched her as she waited in line, she gave me the cutest little wave. The look on her face and the tentative wave spoke volumes to me.
She loves school and was full of wacky and wonderful stories when she came home. Every day after that she was always the first one awake and dressed in the morning!! She keeps bugging me even now about the first day of school.
I used a great sketch that was posted at Let's Capture These Memories sketch blog. Here is the layout I created:
BTW.... this layout was chosen to be a part of the Basic Grey Online Gallery. Coolio!!
I got a chance to work with My Little Bit of Whimsy at LCOM and I just loved this handmade button so much!! Check out Steph's amazing blog and store for more goodies!!
I would like to see you brighten up your next layout using some bright and bold colors!!
