Back to School Layout-2 Challenges

I just have start by saying I am in love with the new idea book from CTMH, the cover page layout is what I based this layout on this week.  This layout was created for the challenge over at The Stamping Boutique, which is "Stripes and Dots."  So to create my stripes I pulled out my score pal and created the pattern on the cream cardstock. Everything is inked with CTMH desert sand ink, the title is cute using the Cricut.   The fun little scalloped border is one of the Kraft Ready to Color borders that I have inked with my black ink pad (CTMH is discontinuing, so hurry fast to get those before they are gone).  I have added a digital image (which I have changed to sepia using Paint.net) of my Lucas on his 1st day of school so you can see what it would look like with photo (I will print the photo and add). There is a hidden journaling spot using this cute digital recipe card image from The Stamping Boutique.  

Now this layout is also for the challenge this week over at The Crazy Challenge, which just so happens to be "Back to School" also. Our sponsor this week is Hobbisimo and the TCC design team has created some fabulous projects to share with you!

I am entering this project in the following challenges:

Going Grey with Scrap Creations- back to school
Papertake Weekly- using dies (stars/letters using cricut and  shape by photo mat is from a die)
Sparkles Creations-primary+ neutral
