Back to School Layout

Hello! I am really excited to share a layout that I made using Bo Bunny and Imagine Crafts products. Imagine Crafts is doing a fun collaboration with Bo Bunny this week, and I am really happy to be playing along. The paper I was given from was just begging to be used for a Back to School Layout, so that's just what I did.

I used a photo from my kids' first day of school for the 2014-2015 year. I fell in love with the Toy Box  papers I was sent. It's so bright and cheery. I decided to do a bit of embellishing on the main paper, which is called Toy Box Circles.

I chose some random circles and used the Goosebumps Dauber on them. I just pressed the dauber top directly on the circles to give a nice texture and sheen to some of them. After the Goosebumps dried, I outlined the outer circle with Tuxedo Black irRESISTables Pico Embellisher. Then, I fussy cut one strip f crayons (Toy Box Colors paper) for the side of my layout. 

I cut out one of the squares from the Toy Box paper that I wanted to use as my title for the layout. Since I wanted the title to follow the curve of the sun, I first laid out the letters directly on the sun without putting them on to my block. When they were arranged correctly, I just pushed my block on to the letters carefully, so that I didn't shift them at all. Then, when I inked them up and stamped them, they were placed perfectly! 

I inked up the mat that I created from the Toy Box Recess paper with some Pear Tart and Summer Sky Memento Ink. My tag was written on with a Memento Marker and inked up as well. 

I used some Tear It! tape to tack down the Divine Twine that I used from Whisker Graphics. The tag is from Whisker Graphics as well. This paper has really made me want to get more layouts made. I have so many pictures printed...and this Toy Box is perfect for a lot of them. So I will need to get scrappin'! Be sure to visit the Imagine Crafts Blog to see more fantastic projects featuring Bo Bunny. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
