First Day Of Kindergarten

Today I have a layout of my youngest daughter on her first day of Kindergarten. She was so excited and proud to be going to school like her big sister. Brings back lots of good memories!!

I am entering it in the challenge at Whimsical Wednesday! The challenge this week is to scrap some school memories with a twist that you must include a chipboard element.



I used a chipboard apple from American Crafts. The other apple I cut from the lace paper and backed with patterned paper.


Supplies used: cardstock - red; patterned paper - binder - SEI; classroom stripe - Dasiy D's, Chalkboard - Karen Foster, Apples Lucky lace cardstock - KI Memories; Chalkboard Alpha Black - Jenni Bowlin; School Daze cardstock stickers - Bo Bunny; journaling spot - Jenni Bowlin; chipboard apple - American Crafts

This is really cute, mommy! I love it... I can still remember waiting around when I was four crying because I didn't get to go to school.

Good memories!
