First Days! -- Bella Blvd. :)

Hi everyone!!! 

Brookie had an amazing first day of the 1st grade!!! We really are blessed, because she LOVES school!!! :)

After we dropped her off at school on Wednesday morning, we ran a bunch of errands with Adam who starts his Junior year of High School on Monday! :)  While we were driving around, I had an idea to make the layout I am sharing today on my mind all day! LOL! So once we were done with our errands, I made this! :)

And I used Let's Get Sketchy's sketch for the base of my layout :)



I used lots of different Bella Blvd. goodies on here :)



Can't believe the HUGE difference between Brookie on her first day of Kindergarten in 2012 and her first day of 1st grade in 2013!! WOW!!! 








Here is the Let's Get Sketchy sketch I used :)





Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
