Driving to School

Happy Tuesday, everyone! I'm back with another layout using the Student Council kit and I used three, yes, THREE photos on my page. So for those of you who like to get more photos than one down on a page, I hope this inspires you in some way! :)

I used the photos that I snapped of the kids on their first day of school this year, and I realized as they drove off that this was the first year they didn't need me to drive them to school (sniff) and that I only have two more years to take "first day of school" photos (sniff, sniff).

The Pink Paislee papers in the Student Council kit make wonderful backgrounds for a layout with their subtle tone-on-tone designs and small accents built in. I was inspired by the stars at the bottom of the "Incredible" sheet and carried the theme through the layout.
To create the circle border I mixed and layered papers, brads, and flair to add interest and dimension.

Here are a couple close-ups:

I'm not sure I've ever mixed so many patterns on one layout! But you know, when you do it in small doses, it totally works! Give it a try...it's fun!

Thanks for coming by and have a fabulous day!
