Hi, Dannielle here! Today I am going to be sharing some of the details about my daughter's first day of school, but before we get into that let me share some details about myself.
I am a 30 something stay at home mom to the most amazing little girl and I am married to the most amazing guy. I know, a little dramatic, but I really do love my people. I started scrapping over 10 years ago, and I love it just as much today as I did back then. My favorite layouts in my albums are the simple ones that have pretty paper and lots of journaling on them. Telling our stories is what keeps me going. My favorite color is yellow (but a close second are all the other colors), I could eat onion rings every day, and I stay up way too late watching too much TV.
Enough about me, lets take a look at my layout!
Last year was my little girls first year of Pre School! I was pretty happy that I was finally able to start a school album for her. I didn't know what I was going to include in this album, and to be honest I still don't. I did know that I wanted each year to start out with the obligatory first day of school picture and I also wanted to document a few little details about that special day. I ended up printing out a full page photo of my girl, and then using a pocket page to document all the smaller details. I loved the way it turned out and I decided to do the same thing for this year!
I always love working with this 9 pocket page protector. It is just so fun filling in all the pockets and when you are all done it looks like a perfect little grid.. so satisfying!
The first thing I did was get my pictures into place, and then I figured out how many pockets I needed for my journaling. After that I got to pick what papers I would be using from the kit to fill in the remaining pockets. The "Sophie" kit had the best patterned papers, and I think I tried every paper I had in that center spot, but the floral just could't be beat.
After I had my "pretty pockets" complete I worked on my journaling. I used one square to document where her outfit came from. I used another square to tell the story of picking out her lunch box for the year. In the final square I jotted down a few quick notes about how excited my little girl was to be going back to school, and then I called this project done!
Thank you all so much for stopping by, and I'll be back next week with another project with you all.
