Recovering from Spark

Scrapbook Page: First day of Kindergarten

Don't worry, I didn't forget about my Spark re-cap...I'm just waiting for my editor to review my main re-cap for Craft Critique and then I'll post my more personal stuff here on my blog.

In the meanwhile, here's a layout I did for Remember When.  I was blessed to be able to scrapbook a very special day for a friend...her daughter's first day of Kindergarten!  

Isn't Bethany so cute!!!  She looks so excited!


The base of the layout is Bo Bunny's new school paper.  I used my Cricut & the Simply Charmed to create the crayons, and then dressed up a Basic Grey chipboard letter "K" with Bo Bunny paper, a 7Gypsies watch face and added some colorful buttons for good measure.  Those letters are October Afternoon Ledger stickers and my handy-dandy old-school Dymo Label Maker.  I love that label maker for paper crafts!  Did you know the labels come in pastels and brights too?  I was originally going to use the pastel pink for this layout, but it just didn't work out.

I love that notebook paper and the strips at the bottom of the page.  The transparency is from Hambly, and scalloped one is Sassafras Lass.
