Savannah -- little girl - big day; Sketch Along Tuesday - Frosted Designs

Please scroll down to the post below to see the Practical Scrappers Challenge Me Tuesday "Cork" Challenge and my Creative Cuts & More Layout using the Filmstrip - Large!!

Hello everyone!!!  Today is Tuesday and boy, do I have a lot going on today!!!  We have our Sketch Along Tuesday over at Frosted Designs and this week it's a 2 pager!!!  I don't do many 2 pagers, so I really had to work extra hard on this one.... But once I figured out what photos I was going to scrap, the rest just fell into place....   This weeks sketch is from 2 of our talented Design Team Members ~  Debbie Bakk and Debbie Burns and here's what they came up with....
A lot of possibilities here....  I changed up the first page just a little, but all in all stayed pretty true to the sketch...  Remember, you don't have to follow it verbatim.. Just get your inspiration from it.. but make sure we can see a little of the original sketch in your creation... 
Okay a little bit about my photos...  I used last months photos of GD Savannah taken at her Kindergarten Awards Ceremony... Her Kindergarten doesn't have a graduation, so this was their big event... I was sitting so far back that some of the photos aren't very good, but since I didn't have that many I still used them for the small ones...  The one with her teacher turned out pretty good...  She told me she enjoyed her first year of school and that she really learned a lot...  I guess so, because she received an award for reading 350 books and she's just in KINDERGARTEN!!  Kids today are just too smart!!!
Here are a few close ups....

This is the left side.. and is a picture of Savannah with her teacher...  I used Webster's Pages - Your Life - Beautiful, and used the Martha Stewart Flower Bed Deep Edge Punch randomly on each side around the beautiful design in the paper...  You can also see the beautiful velvet ribbon that I framed the photo with...  The other ribbon almost matches Mrs. Owen's skirt perfectly!

This is the right side...  On this side I used My Mind's Eye - Lost & Found Collection... I think it matches the Webster's Pages very well.....  You can also see more of the Martha Stewart Flower Bed Deep Edge Punched Borders, Spellbinders - On The Vine Border, Prima Hydrangeas decorated with little pink centers, and a beautiful butterfly that I won from Ness over at Scrap with V..
