My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 116 Back to School

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today is the start of a new and fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! It is my turn to choose the theme for the challenge. With the start of a new school year fast approaching for my grandkids, I began thinking of school projects. Challenge 116 is Back to School! Include a school bus or school house! It must be school related!

For my project I chose to make a 12" x 12" scrapbook page! The paper pack is DCWV School Days. The white background sheet was trimmed down 1/4" on each side and layered on the red dot paper. I cut out the middle section of the red dot paper and used that part for the border cuts on the photo area. Just a way of using more of the paper! The sketch is my play with a Page Maps Nov. 2011 sketch.

Cricut Cartridges:
Elegant Edges - Page 25 Border on shift cut 2.25" from the solid red paper. Page 47 Border on shift cut 1.25" and the second one cut at .50" from the red dot paper.
Nate's ABC's - Page 22 Bus is cut 1.5"
Other supplies include the yellow Baker's Twine on the photo mat and 3rd grade is a sticker from the stash. I started scrapbooking before Cricut so now I have two drawers of stickers that are being forgotten. Time to use some! 
After the first day of school photo is placed on the photo mat, my grandson will print his name under the photo. A perfect way to preserve his handwriting at that age!
