First Day of School (Kindergarten) – Layout for Creative Scrappers sketch #197

I absolutely love Creative Scrappers sketch #197! As soon as I saw it, I knew it was perfect for my dt layout for the Manufacturer/Brand challenge I’m hosting on Paper Secrets. This month’s featured manufacturer is Graphic 45, so I selected a pic of Matthew this last fall on his first day of school and the fabulous G45 ABC Primer. I was also thrilled to be able to incorporate some of the gorgeous Dusty Attic chippies I got from the STTG scrap store! Here’s my take on the sketch:
