Back to School layout

Happy Monday!  It's a back to school challenge at BBTB2 this week.  My kids have been back for a few weeks already-it seems like school starts in the middle of the summer!  I have taken a picture of each of them (along with a group shot) every year since the oldest started kindergarten, so I made a layout for my back to school pictures.  I used the Create A Friend cartridge for the title and the Recess Lite cartridge for the backpack, stack of books, and pencil.  The fun print papers are from Echo Park, along with the Hall Pass journal box.  The corner of this layout looks like my dining room, which is homework central-an exploding jumble of backpacks and textbooks and MacBooks!  Do join us with a school themed project and link it up over at BBTB2.  The designers have some cute projects for you to look at!

  1. Michelle this is a great layout. The papers are great as are your Cricut cuts. Love the title!! I would love see the back to school photos! I had to laugh when you said the corner of the layout looks like your dining room. Oh gads, I remember those days - and Ian would wait as long as possible to do his homework and then wait until after dinner to tell me that he needed something special the next day. Ironically, he is the one of my three children who did not become a teacher!!

  2. Such cute papers and images. The abc paper is so perfect for a school layout. You could really see the changes in your children, year by year. I love the multi-colored little bookworm!

  3. Great layout Michelle!! Loving those cuts and the pattern paper!!! :)

  4. Love the backpack cut along with the books - yep - those are essentials for a great Back to School layout. Hope you are settled into the routine by now.
