Back to school

Well, it's back to school for us this week & I have a back-to-school layout to share 
that I made for Fresh Squeezed Stamps using Subway Series: Summer.

Now, before you assume that I'm super on the ball with scrapbooking my photos, 
I have to tell you, these photos are from two years ago. ;)

I used some school-themed patterned papers to go along with my photos.


I stamped the school sentiment onto black cardstock 
and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. 
Then I dipped a paper towel into some white pigment ink 
and rubbed it over my sentiment to give a chalkboard effect.


There's a tab below the photo of my daughter with her teacher 
that you can pull out to read my journaling.

Thanks for looking!
