This year I have an abundance of school pictures to scrap, what with a first grader, a kindergartner, and two Mom's Day Out attendees... not to mention I started teaching my own class at MDO! I wanted to start tackling those pics right away with the awesome Study Hall kit.
My design for this page is super simple- I loved Diana's "Summer Fun 2011" layout for the Summer Review challenge, so I did my own spin on it. Instead of doing a row of banners/pennants along the bottom, I just created each rectangle to have a notch along the bottom. It's a little more subtle, but it still adds a unique punch to the page.
To make sure that the little dude didn't get lost in the picture, I just quickly doodled around him in the shot with a white gel pen. I loved that this pic gave my perspective of him as I walked out on his first day.
I may be addicted to the new Amy Tan for American Crafts thickers. Oh my cute. I went ahead and grabbed a few more sets from the shop, and I loved the contrast these Kale ones gave to my page.
