Scrapbook Layout: Kindergarten
There are lots of photos- 16! - so I made sure to group them pretty tightly to leave quite a bit of whitespace (or bluespace in this case) in order to give the eye some rest on the page. To print my photos in sizes that make this easy, I made collages of two, three or four photos in Picasa and print them as 4x6's. It's cheap and it turns out even!
The large letters are stickers. I had a sheet of the alphabet with only one of each letter, all capitals, all different fonts. It was a really cute sheet but I wasn't sure what words I could make with it and I didn't have plans for an alphabet album. I decided to jazz up my background with the alphabet tucked behind my photos instead. A few of the letters were bright green and stood out too much, so instead of using the green ones I stamped those letters in Stampin Up Tempting Turquoise ink.
I like how it turned out, but I think I'll go back and add some notes identifying the first and last day photos and I think I should put Zack's name in it somewhere - I missed that somehow! Zack still likes it:
