BBTB2: Cricut Back to School Layout - First Day of School

My granddaughter was two weeks short of the deadline for kindergarten, so she is going to Pre-K at the elementary school.  She is so excited and says her school is the most awesome-est place.  She is really having fun and meeting new friends.  Her mommy, my daughter made a sign and snapped a picture of her and that gigantic smile.

Michelle, from Cricut Crazy Scrapper, is our hostess this week.  She is a master artist in making layouts, and I'm sure she will have a great layout for you to view over at Bitten By the Bug2.  The other designers have some 'school is cool' projects too.  Come join us for our 'Back to School' challenge and link up your card, layout or project this week.   Enjoy!  -- Maureen

I used a lot of cartridges from Design Space for this layout. - Backpack is Doodlecharms, spiral paper and pencil are Family Album, 1st Day and Nametag are Artbooking, school house is Autumn Celebrations, ABC is Recess, apple is Paisley.  I added a strip of washi tape at the bottom and inked all the edges.

  5. What a gorgeous school layout and I love how the photo is the central focus! Thanks for sharing with us at H2H challenges.

  6. Maureen, I really love your layout! The Cricut cuts are perfect together as are all the pretty bright colors. The very cute little girl really makes the layout, though!!

  7. What an adorable layout. She's going to love this now and in the the future. When I sent my kids off to college with their albums, they were so grateful to have them to show, use and remember. Your cricut cuts are done perfectly together. Thank you for sharing this great talent with us at Fantabulous Cricut.

  8. What a great layout Maureen, I am pulling out the leaf dish you gave me a couple of years ago - It is perfect timing.
