Our Craft Lounge + back to school

day 1

I've already scrapped this picture from last years 1st day of school but since I haven't printed this years photos yet I decided to scrap it again! I just had to use this cute school set from OCL that I haven't inked yet so I decided to scrap it for J to put in her album. I'm delighted to say that she has become a scrapbooker too! Yay!! Funny how it was 10 times easier to scrap for her than for myself. I'll have to trick myself into thinking I scrapping for someone else from now on. :)

I went the cardstock route so as to not take away from the cute stamps. I colored the apples with copics and added the apple green sparkly fluff to the leaves. Perfection! I stamped the abc123 in white onto a kraft cardstock strip. I wanted the strip there so it went with my other strips but i also didn't want to mess up the base of my page so it worked out! I used thickers for the title (big surprise) and a sprinkle of buttons for some fun. Hope you liked it!
Come on back Friday for the OCL blog hop. They're releasing a bunch of new stamps and I'll have one set to give away! The sneaks are up starting today so check out the OCL blog if you want to play along.

Oh, she is gorgeous! Yeah, the page is nice too...LOL
Just kidding! I love the apples and the numbers on there. Using the kraft paper was a cool idea too.
