Back to School: Happy First Day Layout by Stephanie Buice

Happy First Day, By Stephanie Buice:

Hi Stephanie here today to share my back to school layout with you.
I can remember these days so well and all the excitement that went along with them, going back to school was so fun! I remember getting to go pick out new supplies and clothes, back to school shopping was awesome! And what little girl doesn't love a new back to school wardrobe!? I know I did and I know my two younger cousins do and this layout is of them.
I love how my aunt makes it a big deal for them on that first morning, she does their hair and gets them dressed in their new clothes for a few pictures before the bus picks them up. Looking back on these pictures I am reminded of how quickly time goes by.

For this layout I took one of the pictures I have of them together, these two are so close in age I love seeing their sisterly bond and friendship. I'm not sure they even ever fight!? 
(haha who am I kidding? They're sisters.)
Of all the papers in this collection I think the Practice Makes Perfect paper is my favorite. I like how clean it is but still interesting.

I decided to use a long strip of it down the side of my layout to make sure your eye is brought all the way down to the bottom of the layout.

I think the little library pockets in this collection are perfect! I folded one up and stuck my journaling card on the inside of it using a mini paperclip to make taking it out super easy.

This collection is full of fun theme stickers so it wasn't hard to find the perfect embellishments.
I layered a few onto of my library card to add more color, that stack of books rocks.

Another thing I really like about this collection are all the washi tapes, I think they are the cutest mix of back to school essentials like the apples and the measuring tape. I mixed them in with some of the everyday washi like the black dots and red stripes, the look is so effortless.

I hope you like my page and found a bit of inspiration to get your back to school photos out to scrap, this collection has just about everything you could think of to get the job done perfectly.
Thanks for stopping by!
