Preschool Layout - Girl - Sketch Challenge

Hello again, everyone!  I'm so excited to share this page with you today.  I recently became a member of this scrapping community called Let's Scrap, but I'm new to the site and don't know how to navigate it yet. But they had this great sketch this week that I decided to use to create my daughter's 1st day of Preschool page.  I wanted to use some bright colors to match the theme and her personality.  I used some pre made embellishments that I had and decided to make my own embellishment as a journaling block.  I will explain more after I show the pictures.  I had first made the layout without pictures.  When I started printing the pictures to go on the layout, I had more than I had originally thought, so it worked to create the mini photo banner at the bottom of the left page.  Finally, when I thought I was done, I felt it still needed something, so I added buttons on the top border.  So here are the pictures...

I'm in love with my little embellishment.  It started out as a scrap of white paper.  I then punched one side with my EK success punch.  I drew the blue lines and the red line to make it look like a paper and corner rounded the other two sides.  I added the super cute brads that my friend had given me and wrote in the information under it.  I then used pop dots (of course, lol!) and added it to my layout.

Here's the original sketch

Here's the completed two page layout
