School Days

This is my last one for today. I'm bushed!! LOL Over at http://myshericrafts.blogspot.com/ challenge #17 is 'Back to School'! Our children are grown but we do have Grands in school. Our DD's twins start kindergarden Wednesday and are sooooo excited!! Bug will be in 4th this year. That will leave her with just one at home. Oh how they grow up way way to fast!! I made this layout so she can add photos of their first day of school. I used my Gypsy. I used Heritage cartridge for the school. Cut it twice in the white and then ran it off the page 3 times to get the flag, flag pole and chimney all different colors. I just put a piece of black cardstock behind the windows. I used Doodlecharms cartridge for the school buses. I also ran some off the page to get the wheels and tags in black and white. Then I pieced all the different things together. I cut 'First Day' from the Don Juan cartridge. I popped up the buses. I doodled around the letters and the buses. You can't see the bus doodles in the photo though. (I had a hard time photographing it. I snapped, deleted, snapped, deleted over and over and decided to just use this one. It looked better than the others.) I had the bg paper in my stash for a good while so I don't remember where it came from or who made it. Hop on over to myshericrafts and join in on the fun! You have until noon CST Saturday, 8/14 to enter. Hope ya'll like my layout!! :)
