First and Last

I've had some photos waiting to be made into a scrapbook layout for a while and I finally had the right tools and inspiration! I used lots of Papertrey Ink goodies on this page, including the new stamp set, School Time.

First and Last LO

Here's a closer look at some of the background and embossing:

Love this! The details are perfect! I always love to see how much children change throughout the school year - it's amazing to look at those first day pictures on the last day and very neat to see them scraped together!

I just love it when people integrate their stamps into sb'ing. You did a really wonderful job with the School Time set.

That's such a good idea. I always do the first day photo, but it never occurred to me to do the last day too. Brilliant.
