Hello everyone. Christin here today.I can’t believe that school has started, where did the summer go ?? This year my kids started 3rd and 5th grade. They are getting so big. Where did the time go ?

13- full

I used the Family & Co collection for this Back to school layout.

13-1

Since I see my kids as star students I had to pick a star to go behind the photos. I used my Cameo and cut out a star and placed a patterned paper behind the star.   I like to use a little brighter colors on the background than on the patterned paper that I pick out – that way you get a softer transition and the papers and photos will stand out a little more.

13-2

It was the  alphabet tag that inspired me to make a back to school layout.  To add a little more school themed I added some puffy stickers with the weeks days on in a half circle around the bottom part of my title.

13-3

I used a black papers from the Sweet Nothings collection to cut out the title Back to school. I placed one part above the
photo and one below the photo.

13-4


I added a few layers of papers – a mix from the 6×6 papers to get smaller patterns and from the big papers to make the picture stand out even more.

Thanks for joining me on the blog today.

Collections used: SweetNothings, Family & Co
