Butterflies Layout

I really like this photo of Caitie on her First Day of School. In this one photo, you can see and feel all her emotions…anxious, nervous, scared, unsure, butterflies in her stomach. I wish I could take it all away for her. This is something she has to go through on her own. All I can do is be there for her when she does needs me and reassure her that school and everything that goes along with it will get easier with time. Everything will be okay.

I used items from the Amy Tangerine Collection by American Crafts. The colors of this line are great. They went really well with this photo. I especially love the graph papers and the flowers…perfect for some of my school LO’s. I really LOVE this “Good Company” Patterned Paper that I used for my background! I used it to remind Caitie that she is in good company. She’ll find that her classmates are great kids and will love her…she just needs time to get to know them. I love how this LO turned out!
