It seems like the first two or three years of Trevor's life I scrapped nothing but his 'firsts.' First bath, first solid food, first tooth, first steps, and the list goes on and on. The firsts happen less often now that he's 5, but there are still plenty to scrap. Here is Trevor doing his very first homework assignment.
The yellow lined background paper is (appropriately) from the Old School line by Pink Paislee. The dotted paper is from the same line. It was left over from this layout:
I love the way the same paper can read so differently on two different layouts.
The other papers were scraps too. (Why is it SO satisfying to use up scraps?!) The layout came together really quickly. Thanks to Shannon for another great sketch!
