2nd Grade LO

Our current challenge at Frosted Designs is NUMBERS!  You need to have numbers on your project which can be a card, layout or off the page creation.

I chose to create a laytout of Tanner's First Day of 2nd Grade.

I started with some images I purchased in the Silhouette Online Store.

I cut these images out in red, white, green and black cardstock.  In addition to the Numbers challenge, I am trying to use more than one piece of patterned paper on my layouts - very scary for me!!  Because the papers are so busy, I wanted the embellishments and title pretty simple.  I also trimmed the pages a bit and mounted them to a piece of red cardstock, and put a 2" black border in between the two sheets.

I sized the title to be 6" wide.  I assembled it and overlapped the black border just a bit.

I tucked the First Day banner behind one of the photos, along with the red arrow.

I wrote a little journal strip using lots of numbers!

We live 2 blocks from Tanner's school and walk him most days.  I love this shot of Mike and Tanner walking ahead of me!

I hope you join us at Frosted Designs with your numbers project!!

You are such a talent. I have a photo of my grandson boarding the bus his first day of K and I debated about using it because it's his back, but now for sure it' part of my layout (whenever I get to it!)

What a great page. I can't get over how much your boys have grown over the past few years.... just where has the time gone!
