Polka Dots, Green Bag

You would never know by the title that the layout I am sharing with you today is Lily's first day of 8th grade photo.  This is the first year that I didn't have a say in what Lily wore heading off for an occassion such as this.  I really wanted the cool pink dress with her jean jacket to be "the" outfit.  She had other ideas! Lily went with the polka dotted jean shirt and her new green canvas backpack.  

I really wanted the polka dotted paper to pop in this layout so I chose the bright yellow dotted Gymnastics paper (#1417) from the " Sports & Activities" Line. I love how it stands out in contrast to the green cardstock.

To give my photo and all the bits of handcut chevron Racing paper (#1422 from "Sports and Activities) height, I used Helmar ZapDots.  You can see in the photo above how the picture and paper are about 1/8" off the paper.

What did your child wear for the first day of school this year?
