It is back to school time in the Thompson house and I am so excited for the kids to get back into their school routine! My daughter was the first to head back to school and she is looking forward to her Sophomore year! I always take a lot of back to school photos on their first day! I wanted to create a layout with Alyssa's photos using a non back to school themed collection!

I thought the Doodlebug Design Cute and Crafty collection would be perfect! The colors are fun, bright and cheerful and the floral die cuts are the perfect pieces to embellish around the page.

This pie chart cut file from Lacey Ann Designs is so fun and a great way to show off some of the colors and patterns in this collection! I backed the file with some of the papers from the Cute and Crafty 6x6 paper pad. I also wanted to add some splash of color to my background so I pulled out the Party Dress ink from Catherine Pooler Designs to create a large circle of splatter.

Once the color was dry in the background I trimmed down the white cardstock to 11.50x11.50 and matted it onto the Love This 12x12 paper!

I used the Cute and Crafty Bits & Pieces to embellish around the page and added in a few of the Bright Bouquet Sprinkles. To finish off the layout I typed out my journaling on my computer using a typewriter font and then printed it out! I used my paper trimmer to cut it down into strips and then adhered to my layout. I added in a few of the Rainbow Hearts Shape Sprinkles under my journaling to bring some color down to the bottom right corner!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed my layout today and are inspired to create a back to school layout using the Cute and Crafty collection! Have a great day!
