I made a layout for some pictures from our elementary Walk to School Day (see bottom for what that is), using my new Suburbia cartridge and the Pooh Font for my title letters. I was going for kind of an old-fashioned collage feel to the layout and the image of the little boy and the vintage camera on Suburbia were perfect! I'm really excited about this cartridge and have lots of layouts planned for it!!!
My paper and the globe sticker are from Echo Park's This and That Charming collection. I love the newsprint paper on the photo mats, and thought that added to the vintage old scrapbook feel I was going for. Sorry the pics are so dark-spring has retreated and left us a last blast of snow and lots of rain (and no sunshine for taking pictures)! It was 85 degrees on Monday and by Wednesday the temperature was in the 30s! I'm going to link this to the Celebrate The Occasion anything goes challenge this week.

Our elementary school is trying to help students be healthy by encouraging walking to school for those who live in the immediate neighborhood. In the spring and fall, the walking school bus gets many kids walking or biking, supervised by volunteer parent walkers. The whole school celebrates International Walk to School Day in the fall with an all-school walk to school starting at a local plaza, accompanied by the high school drum line!
