"School Days" 8x8 Scrapbook Page to commemorate the moments!

Hi everyone and welcome, welcome! ❤

I have another Graphic 45 inspired scrapbook page to share with you today. And this one was quite simple to pull together with a little help from Graphic 45 and their coordinating paper collections and metal Staples embellishments!

I used Graphic 45's An ABC Primer papers and chipboard.

For the base of my 8x8 layout, I simply layered design paper to black card stock and created multiple layers. I added my favorite black doilies to the page to sort of "fill in" the gaps. I love how doilies do that! ❤

The Antique Metal door pull is a perfect accent. I placed one right at top center of my page, adhered down with some glossy accents. It almost looks like I can "carry" the page away! hehe! 

 I disassembled the metal clothes pin and only used half of it for the "Remember" sentiment. I placed an Ornate Metal Key in the groove and it fit perfectly, take a look.... ❤

I used the numerical stickers from the Tropical Travelogue sticker sheet to commemorate the year. This was Logan's first year in school - Kindergarten!

The coordinating An ABC Primer chipboard pieces make creating a page that much more easy!

I cut the letters from the Building Blocks sheet to spell my son's name, layered them onto black cardstock, then popped them up with dimensionals... super easy! ❤

The stamped metal brads make a fun accent to the corners of a page...

And guess what.... no flowers on this project! Wowzers! That sure is a challenge for me... "not" to add flowers. LOL!  But I hope you like the page! ❤

This project will also be featured on the Graphic 45 blog in detail. Be sure to hop on by to check it out and enter to win the Place in Time prize giveaway happening this week!

Thank you so much for stopping by... it means the world to me! ❤

Have an amazing week and I'll see you back here again really soon!

xoxo ❤,
