First Day Of School Layout

I have been wanting to finish a layout using the photos from my daughter's first day of Kindergarten for some time now and I did not have an idea, but the Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is what I have been waiting for for inspiration. Today the challenge is to Recycle/Upcycle. I had just the thing to use.
This is the bag I made for my daughter to hold a little gift on her first day back in August. It has been sitting in her play room ever since BUT today it became this...

I cut off the bag and trimmed the front design before adding a great stamp from My Pink Stamper Lunchbox Thoughts. I placed it on the layout and added my photos. 
In order to match the facing page, I placed a pink ribbon down the color line and added the title to match the Simply Sweet font already on the bag. I needed a splash of yellow on the facing page so I picked a glitter button form the Oriental Trading Company set I recently bought. Success! What a fun challenge. Happy Friday to all.
