Picture Perfect

The other day, a friend of mine asked how I manage to get cute pictures of my kids. I told her that I just take about 25 and one usually turns out half way decent. This got me thinking. So I made this layout with some of the outtakes. 

I used the Sketch challenge from Frosted Designs as a basis. But since baby had a rough night and would not go to sleep (those horrible teeth!), I did not manage to upload it on time. That's life! 

Here is the layout opened up: 

The flowers were originally white and I used my copic markers to match them to the color scheme of the page.

Here is the title and the ribbons with the second flower element. 

Tomorrow is the big day for DD. She will start first grade. Her outfit is picked out, the Schultüte ready ( large cornet of cardboard filled with sweets and little presents given to children in Germany and Austria on their first day at school) and of course, it will be the hottest day of the year.
It will be interesting, for sure!

Off to get the day started!
Thank you for stopping by!
All the best,
