Savannah - First Day of Kindergarten ~ The Pink Elephant Challenge No. 24

Hi everyone!!  It's Thursday and we have another Theme Challenge over at Ella's Pink Scrapbook...(AKA The Pink Elephant)..  And this weeks theme is "Back To School"...  This year little GD Savannah started Kindergarten... and my DIL sent me these photos of her first day...  Too cute.. and you can see that little GS Colten was not left out...
This was just an all around fun layout to do..  As most of you know, this is not my normal style, but this is definitely Savannah!!  And since this is her layout I figured I would play off of her personality and go all out using the bright colors, the chipboard embellies.. (which she loves to play with when she comes over).  I also add a few fun buttons and some bright pink ribbon...   This layout has BoBunny written all over it... or, should I say   ..stuck all over it...!!!  lol

Here are a few close ups:
As I said earlier the journaling is what my DIL sent to me by email along with the photos...   I journaled on BoBunny     , layered it on SU      and then popped it up with pop dots... 

This has got so much 3-D going on here... This is the bottom right corner....

Here's another corner with a chipboard flourish.. (Top left)

And here's the last corner... (Top right)

And finally here is a close up of the buttons, which are also on BoBunny chipboard circles...

This layout qualifies for a few challenges, which are:
The Pink Elephant ~ Theme--Back to School
ABC Challenge ~ Distressing

Here is my scrappy list of things I used:
SU Pixie Pink CS
BoBunny Petal Pushers
The Paper Studio ~ Glossy Flowers Pink ~ large circle
SU Basic Black CS
BoBunny Peacock Lane Stripe ~ (I used the lime green side)
BoBunny Petal Pushers ~ Stripe (under the photos)
BoBunny Petal Pushers ~ Combo Stickers
BoBunny Petal Pushers Chipboard embellies
Ribbon from The Robert Stanley Collection
Buttons

Thanks for dropping by...  Be sure and check out the other wonderful layouts from the Design Team...  And remember our challenges are running every two (2) weeks now, and that's plenty of time to put something together... We would love for you to play along...  If you do, don't forget to upload it over at TPE so we can all see it... 
Be sure and stop back by tomorrow for my first SOUS DT layout!!
Hugs!!!

Gosh Fern, this layout looks like it was a lot of fun to make, it's soooo bright and cheerful - it just oozes Savannah, I really like it....

My oldest GD starts Kindy in Feb next year, she was fitted for uniform yesterday - yes, EVERY schoolkid in Australia wears uniform - NO exceptions. But she did look cute, she's soooo tiny...LOL

Hugs xx
