First Day Photos: A Just Nick DT Page

Good morning and happy Friday!  All week long on the Just Nick blog the design team has been sharing projects inspired by everything 'Back to School'.  Nicole's awesome cut files and the push to create something to fit the school theme, prompted me to pull out these photos from Emme's very first day of preschool, last year.

Supplies used: DCWV - cardstock; Simple Stories - patterned paper, die cuts, bradz, stickers; October Afternoon - flair, diecuts, patterened paper; Pebbles - patternend paper; Tim Holtz - mini attacher and staples; Other: foam adhesive, glue dots, Veteran Typewriter font.
I had a lot of pictures to include, so I knew I wouldn't have much leftover room for a large background file or intricate, detailed design.  Lucky for me, Nicole has files are versatile to fit just about any theme or projects parameters.  Admittedly, her word files are some of my favorites and what I naturally defaulted to for this page.  I used the word 'photos' from the Hashtags 1 file, to fill in the white space on my focal point photo, and complete my title.
I love that the font used for all of the text in this cut file, leaves out the spaces for the insides of the letters.  I used that as an opportunity to add some embellishment to the title, by pulling some coordinating heart diecuts and stapling into the center of each 'O'.
Adding the little bits and details at the completion of the page, is one of my favorite parts of the scrapbooking process.  I combined stickers from both Simple Stories and October afternoon to adorn my journaling card and finished off the cluster of elements with the cutest little piece of flair.
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you'll check out the rest of the DT School project on the Just Nick blog this week!
