First Day of School for Bitten By the Bug's Use a Number challenge

Good day readers, it's time for a new challenge at BBTB2.  The challenge is to Use a Number.  This one should be easy.  You still have Christmas (25), the New Year (2020), a birthday card or anniversary.  So many ideas for numbers.  Mine is a little off season but I always scrap pages for my SIL/nephew to add to an album I gifted them.  This year was his first year at preschool.  I found the cutest strip of numbers to use.  Then I added the "first day of school" image for a title.

Here is a close up of the Locker Talk First Day of School image.

These numbers are actually the negatives of the image with is numbers in a bubble type strip.  I inked the edges before adhering to the page.

Technically this is the first page.  I left the journal card for my SIL to complete. I cut the title with my Cricut Maker using the Cricut Sans font.

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget to play along for the next two weeks at BBTB2.
