Today I am also sharing a layout I created with some of the school themed chipboard and wood pieces that the hubby and I designed. My daughter Jolie’s first day back to school was Wednesday, September 4th.  Every year I take many photo’s of my children and at least one of them getting on the bus.  I can’t believe how fast the time has gone. Jolie is a 6th grader and started middle school. She’s the youngest of  my 4 kiddos. Many parents can’t wait until their children go back but  for me ..well I miss them. I love spending as much time with them as I can.  Maybe it’s because I am getting older and 2 of my children have graduated and starting a new chapter of their lives ..adulthood.

Note: I used a Scrapfriends sketch for inspiration.

I did very little altering to this chipboard piece. I  wanted to go with a neutral (kraft) page for this layout. I just added a bit of black ink to the edges  of the bus.

To alter the #school (hashtag word) I did the same as the bus with just lightly inking around the word to keep with the look of the layout.

I am just loving this little wood bus and love adding different textures and media to my pages. I colored it using yellow and black  Faber Castell Pitt Pens.
