Here’s Kaitlin on her 1st day of school at Webster. We really struggled with the decision of sending her to Kindergarten or Jr. K, but in the end, we decided on Jr. K. What’s wrong with a little extra time to enjoy youth? August 2007

Comments & Techniques:
The floral pattern on the background is pulled from the floral pattern on my daughter’s skirt that she wore on the first day of school. The layered flowers, gems and brads add to the sense of youth and vibrancy and a few ‘spill over’ the edges to give the sense that the pattern continue off the page. The pen outline around the sticker letters helps the title to stand out against the floral background. The notebook paper styled journaling spot adds to the school theme of the layout.
