8th Grade Layout

I created this layout to scrapbook pictures of my son from this school year.  Since next year both of my kids will be in high school I wanted to create more of a child like layout with primary colors.  I was actually able to dig into my stash of scraps to create the majority of this layout.
For the school house, pencils, bus and slide I used the Recess Lite cartridge.  The tree came from My Community, the clouds from Pooh and Friends and the title from Plantin Schoolbook. 
The title was cut out twice and off set to create a layer.  I embossed the top layer with the Tiny Mosaic Cuttlebug embossing folder to give it some texture.  The clouds were embossed with the D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug embossing folder and the little boys shirt was embossed with the Candy Stripes Cuttlebug embossing folder.
I inked and chalked most of the die cuts and added some faux stitching and doodling to them.
I used the Holiday Holly Berry Trendy Twine to tie the pencils together and also for the bow on the button.
On the hand cut flag, I added a sentiment from the Docerela Creations Mix & Match I Stamp Set.
