Loving my new toy!

I don't know if it is because its holidays, or because I am loving my new Silhouette so much, or just because I have had a break from scrapping, but I am having a ball and I am scrapping up a storm!  These photo's have been lying on my desk since January 2010, I kid you not! I love them and I have wanted to do something with them for such a long time, but no matter what I did, nothing felt right. I must have tried a gazillion different traditional 'back to school'LO's and colours, but nothing would work, so they remained on my desk, waiting for mr. Mojo to return.
 And he did, in the form of a new challenge blog Its about a Girl. Their first challenge is a mini challenge in the form of a sketch. I used the Sketch for the left side of my LO
 These are photo's of my GD, Hannah's first day of school. I love the first day of school photo's, with perfect uniform, perfect hair and most of all the brand new school shoes! There is just something about brand new school shoes that melts my heart.
The journaling will be done in the top left corner of the right page.
Cardstock is Bazzil, dp is the last piece I had from a paperstack (I think by DCW) and some Prima cut up for the banner, Washi tape, twine, flowers and ribbon from my stash. I cut the title, decorative border and photo frame with my new best friend, my Silhouette Cameo.
Have a great day everybody, I am going to be very busy today running errands for DH, but I am hoping to make another dent in that pile of photo's on my desk.
