Back to School

Back to School layouts are popular at the moment with school about to start after the holidays....can't do one yet as they haven't gone back but I am still trying to catch up with old photos!!  So this is one of Cassie starting in the Nursery Class in 2012.

I am entering the challenges at Lasting Memories and Red Carpet Studio which both require 'Back to School' as the topic.

Lasting Memories criteria is to use Alphas and Numbers both of which are on this layout.
The challenges closes at the end of the month so still time to enter!!

Red Carpet Studio challenge is based on the film Billy Madison which follows a man who has grown up in the life of luxury without any responsibilities. In his quest to go back to school he earns his diploma without any help from rich relatives.
This challenge closes on the 6th September so lots of time to enter!

St. Peter's Church

This layout is all about the church that I attended when I lived in London.  My parents were married there, I was Christened, was in the choir, taught Sunday school and was also married there!!!

I used the sketch from Let's Capture Our Memories - 84 .


I was quite good...although I didn't actually have a title and my journalling is on the opposite side!!!  I used a lot of rub-ons which I seem to buy/save and never use!!!

The challenge ends at the end of the month so still time to enter!!

I am also entering into the challenge at Archi-scraps.
This is the inspiration photo....and the added criteria is castellation.


The castellation is at the top of the church.
The challenge closes at the end of the be quick to enter!!
