First Day of School Layout

I am currently trying to finish my oldest son's Kindergarten scrapbook.  My goal was to have it finished before he started school again.  He starts school next week...we will see if I get that accomplished!  Anyway, I wanted to share this simple layout with you from his first day of school in 2012.
The background paper is from Recollections.  The blue patterned paper is by the Paper Studio.  I also added two curly paper clips for just a little something extra.
On a side note, if you are like me and love a good challenge blog, head on over to Connie's blog.  She has a back to school theme right now plus she has some wonderful blog candy to give away once she hits 400 followers. 

Have a wonderfully crafty day!
