School time

by Alicia Barry | September 8, 2013

For most of you in the States, school is just starting for the year, but here in Australia we are only just past the half way point. We are just nearing the end of term 3 (of 4), so "back to school" this isn't. Instead I have gone back to some older photos of my little boy when he first started school. I can't believe how little he looks in this photo compared to now, just days away from his 9th birthday. What a great opportunity to go back and re-visit some old photos. 

For this layout I have used a Bella Boutique paper pack along with some cut elements from the Bella! Boutique inspiration kit. I have also used some cute chipboard elements.

I found the traditional school colours quite bright compared to my usual style, so I used plain brown cardstock to tone the layout down, and stuck to one cluster of colour.

Here are some close ups of the layered chipboard elements.
