first day of school

Hey all, Michelle here with a couple layouts I created using that fabulous sketch from Laura Whitaker that the design team is playing with this week. Since there were 3 spaces for photos and it was also the first week of school for my kiddos this week AND I happen to have 3 kids, I figured this sketch would be perfect for a back to school layout!
When I have multiple layouts to create of basically the same theme (school, sports, etc) I will many times use a sketch to create my pages using different papers and other elements to make the pages look different. For my pages today I used the new Buttons and Bows Classic kit which had the perfect colors to compliment my photos.
So my first page was of my littlest one's first day of Kindergarten. I followed the basic design of the sketch, adding my own touches to personalize it.
Side tip: My favorite adhesive for wood veneers/pieces is the fine tip glue pen from Stampin' Up! Seriously awesome for wood!!
For my second page I did a mirror image of the sketch to change things up a bit, still following the basic design of the sketch.
So let's see what you can come up with! Create a page using this sketch and upload to the Noel Mignon facebook page for a chance to win a Daily Diary Kit (must be a US resident to enter)! Noel will draw a random name from the entries on Sept 30th so get scrappin'!!
