Add a nice warm grey and you are thinking of Fall and Back to School time!
I pulled out some school themed papers from the GCD Studios Elementary My Dear line. I love the die cut apple sheet! Truth be told, sometimes I don't know the best way to use die cut sheets, but since I knew I wanted the apple image to represent the red from my color combination I thought layering it over a blue patterned paper and thinking of the two as one whole patterned paper made it a lot easier to use in my design. A strip of pencils as a border was a no brainer for a back to school page so I was really just looking for some grey to incorporate into my layout. I found it in a grid "B" side from The Great Outdoors collection. From the same collection I grabbed the big chipboard "Adventure" to make my title pop:
Add some stitching for that homespun feel:
and some typewritten journaling:
and you have a Back to School layout for boys, girls or both!
