Room 14 | Maggie Holmes

I took soooo many photos on Gracie's first day of school. *Note: Almost all of them were of her, except for the 2 mom's that asked if I could take a few photos of their kids since they had forgotten their camera. (But that's a whole different story, one you probably don't want my opinion of ha-ha  Seriously, you forgot your camera on your kid's very first day of school??????)
I digress. Anyway, this is a favorite photo from that day as she was looking for her classroom.
I used a bunch of Maggie Holmes collections on this one, lots of layers and pop dots!
There wasn't much room left for any journaling, so I added a piece of cardstock to the back and wrote on it. This is page 3 (or is it 4?) of her first day. You only have 1 first day of school, so there are lots of photos and memories to record ;)
Oh, and I printed the photos I took for the 2 moms and gave the pictures to both of them the next day. I wanted to drag them back home with me and show them what they could do with the first day photos, but I refrained. At least so far ;)

As always, thanks for stopping by!
