Preschool Graduate

Hi there!

Today I thought I would share with you a layout that I recently created about my son's preschool graduation:

Of course it was a bittersweet occasion - I was so very proud of him, but at the same time so sad that it was end of a season for both him and me. He is the baby of the family and everybody tells you that the years will fly by quickly once you have children, but I didn't quite realise how fast! I felt like he had only just started preschool, and now he was already graduating and getting ready to head off to big school!

While I was feeling emotional about it, I wanted the layout to reflect the excitement that Isaac felt about the occasion. The 'Class Act' papers by Kaisercraft were perfect for the layout and with the co-ordinating Collectables from the same range, the layout came together quite easily. I love how the bright colours in the papers really pop off the page with the neutral background. The inspiration for the design of the layout came from a recent BasicGrey page of the month that I thought would work well. I liked that I could include 6 photos on the layout without it looking cluttered. 

I haven't quite brought myself to scrap his first day of Kindergarten yet!! I'm still missing him on the days that we used to spend together, but he has adjusted so well to big school and is loving it!

Thank you for visiting my blog and for any lovely comments that you may leave!
