First Day, First Grade---only two years late!

In digging through my photos, I found one that I somehow missed---the first day of school TWO YEARS AGO!!! Don't know how that happened, but I thought I'd post what I did with it because after all, 'tis the season of first day layouts!
I mostly used Glitz' Wild and Free collection, which is perfect, because that is my daughter's personality.  I love that she is holding Diary of a Wimpy Kid...
I used my new silhouette to cut all these number 1's and one words out, then used the negative space to show a gorgeous paper behind.  I used the same paper to punch the hearts.  I am in awe of the silhouette and all the great things it can do. You can see it a little better below. 
I also did lots of painting and stamping on this layout...with some stamps I bought at a garage sale!!!
I love the teensy twine bow too--and the black hearts washi tape. I want to tape everything!
This layout was inspired by one of Kristine's sketches at Creative Scrappers.  I will be linking up there and also at Paper Issues, whose current issue involves using twine! 
Happy Saturday---enjoy your weekend!
