Ready Set Go First Day of School layout (for BBTB2)

It's a back to school challenge using a cricut apple at BBTB2 this week.  I used the Artbooking cartridge to make my back to school layout, plus some stickers and paper from the Echo Park Paper and Glue collection.  The picture frames (including the one with the ruler) are from Artbooking and so is the journal box, apple, and titles.  I take pictures of the kids every year with their backpacks before we leave for school on the first day, so I've got my layout ready to go!  Aren't the picture frames just super cool looking and fun?  For the notebook paper one, I actually just added the border cut to the top to make it look like a frame.

The DT has lots of cute school projects featuring an apple and we'd love it if you link up a project!

  5. This is an awesome layout Michelle! I love the die cuts you used from Artbooking and I love, love the papers you used. The ruler base paper is just too cool. I also love the backpack paper. I can't believe it is time for school already. It just blows my mind. I to always took pics of my boys on the first day of school, so I will be keeping these die cuts in mind-yes, I'm that far behind in scrapbooking-mostly of my youngest. lol Hugs, Brenda

    Have a blessed day
