Layout | First Year Teacher

Candid shots. They're my favorite. Especially when they have a great story behind them. These pics were from my very first year as a teacher. I was in my classroom and wanted to get an early morning pic to show just how excited I was to start teaching.

I decided to scrapbook these photos this week because it's been about 3 years since I took this photo and these pics had been sitting on my scrap table just as long. Time to give them a home...don't you think??

I started knowing I wanted to use these pictures and that I absolutely love pink. I recently subscribed to Citrus Twist Project Life kit and my first kit came with the Maggie Holmes collection from Crate Paper.  Everything else was a fill in from scraps around my scrap table.

The alpha number banner was a scrap from Crate Paper's on trend collection. Since the background paper is kraft and the inner script paper is off white I decided to use this paper as a transition between the two colors and a base to break up all the other colors added to the layout.

The layout turned out just as I like it.....A few pops of color with a mostly neutral background. I tend to make fashion choices this way too. Ha!!!

Thanks for stopping by everyone.

Have a great week.
