the last first day together: crate paper

The August Creative Weekly challenge is going on now over on the Crate Paper blog. The theme this time is navy blue + sequins. I chose to document the last first day photo of my boys I'll ever take together since Alec will be in college next year. I used rows of sequins to embellish my long title. I wanted to make sure the title stood out because the important part of this layout to me was realizing it was the last one.

I mostly used Crate Paper's DIY Shop collection, plus a little from Maggie's Flea Market collection which should be in stores in the next couple weeks.


  1. What a great layout and perfect paper choice. I LOVE your title. It's just great. Finally the concept of last first day was very creative. I know I'm going on and on but this is a great layout! Well done Deb
