Back to School with Bo Bunny

 Did you get some sweet photographs of your kids or grandkids when school started this fall? Well, rather than leaving them on your camera, get them printed out and scrapped using this fun little line of papers for Back to School!

Bo Bunny made the grade with their "Learning Curve" line. They have such a variety of patterned papers and embellishments that just make creating pages easy! Their patterned papers are double sided-- and they are the kind that makes you want to buy two of each page since you want to use both sides.

Instead of focusing on the "first day" for this layout, I decided to feature another important part of school starting... and for my daughter that means NEW CLOTHES! It was fun to do a little fashion shoot w/ her so she could try on her new clothes.

This line uses the classic primary colors you'll find in school papers, but it had a great style that didn't seem too juvenile to me. It was fun to match the geometric shapes that the line offered on one page.

And instead of using the scraps from these projects on cards only, I decided to make a little teacher gift too! I used buttons, ribbon, pattern paper and cardstock stickers to decorate a little dollar store cork board. Then I cut out journaling cards from one of the pattern paper sheets and pinned them onto the board for the teacher to use to jot down notes in class. Hopefully the teacher will find it really useful.

And since the teacher is new to the school, I made her a little welcome card too using the pattern papers that come in this line. What a great way to get into the school year for a teacher to get a gift and welcome card!
Pin It!

Adorable. Love the ribbon on the bottom of the cork board. I love the letter cards and the way you popped the two up. Great work.
