Layout for a Challenge!

Here is my entry for The Pink Elephant Challenge. The challenge was to create something with a "Back To School" theme. This is Anna on her first day of Pre-School. I used a collection of different papers, stickers, rub-ons, and etc. The felt apple is my own creation!
I have been working my little fingers to the bone creating these precious felt apples. I love their look- not only for back to school, but also for fall! You can do so much with an apple, and here I was thinking it was just "teacher 'ish," but I'm in love... my scrappin' girls will be getting them soon! ;) (You know who you are-hint: WRCC)

And this cute, smart layout is compliments of the super crafty, Mindy Jett. Mindy is a friend, one of Anna's previous PDO teachers (and her all time favorite), and one of my special monthly scrappin' friends. At our last crop, she made these "Back to School" layouts for a swap and I LOVED them! She made the owl and the apple and they are dimensional. So adorable! Then... she gave me one! I felt so lucky and honored! All I did was add a 5x7 pic of Mac on his first day of school and the black letter stickers for "first grade".
Well, that's all for today! Enjoy all the pretty creations!
