1st Day of 2nd Grade ~ FotoBella DT

   Here's another school layout I made of my son in his younger elementary days, using Bo Bunny's Pop Quiz I want it all bundle from FotoBella.

   I took my inspiration from this old Page Maps sketch (December 2006) used for this months Four Categories Challenge @ for Category 3.

 I started with the chalkboard paper and inked it up a little with some white ink. I did use a white pen for the journaling, but somehow it came out light pink. At least it matches the chipboard eraser on the pencil. The ruler, paperclip, and 2nd grade are also from the same chipboard. I stuck my favorite photo of my son from that day, onto a tag. I stamped the date, did some machine zig zag stitching, and added the ribbons through it that I got from the ephemera package. I used washi tape on the lower photo, and scattered some buttons around to finish it off. 

Thanks for looking!
