It's back to school time

Wednesday was Kate's first day of school. I started this layout with the story of how discouraged she was when she realized she was one of the only kids who didn't know how to read her name and let it end with what a great day she had anyway, but they today after only 20 minutes of practicing, she is now writing it like a pro with no help at all. Of course I busted out the camera so now I have new a sample of her work to scrap that story with. Luckily, just the 5 minutes I spent seeing my baby off on her first day of school ever provided several funny little tales to tell.

I created this for a challenge on a scrapbooking group I belong to, Scrapbook Bingo. It is great fun over there....I recommend it highly. We had to create our title out of an equation. On mine it's more of a subtitle, but I hope it will still count. If not, well at least I got a layout done right?

I don't think I've ever used so many patterns on one page. The background is a worn, distressed pink paper. The sheet above it is brown with light pink squares. The journaling is on a different distressed pink shade. The title is on a striped sheet and the heart is made from a completely different pattern. This is a digi layout, but I actually have papers in these same pink and chocolate tones and as soon as I heal, I am remaking this one. I'll just scraplift from myself!


  1. Love the colors and papers! great LO! :)

  2. What a great layout and an awesome story! And you are right... Scrapbook Bingo rocks!!


  3. OMG, how cute is that??? I love brown and pink and the B&T paper is so cute! I love how sweet the kids look that first day, all fresh faced - then by week four, they're tired of it...LOL Great LO!


  4. very cool, Christina. Good job. I don't really experiment with digi, but seeing this... I just may do it!
