Can You Case It #135 Back to School Challenge - Project Life

It's time for another challenge at Can You Case It and this week we are all about going back to school.
 I think it's the end of the summer in the States and the new school year is starting for them, but while here in Australia our school year is still happening and I wasn't really sure what to do for this challenge. Then I realised I still hadn't scrapped any photo's of my middle child, Mr.6 going off to big school:

Gosh isn't he a cutie!! I used the All Year Long card collection and matching embellishment kit for my layout and I just love how it turned out.

Some of the cards were originally 4x4 but some of the ones I wanted to use were actually 4x6 and so

I just cut those down to fit into the pockets. Don't be afraid to mix things up and think outside the box. I'm also known for using washi tape to stick two 3x2 cards together to make a 6x4. It's all about making PL fit your needs.

Now another question I'm often asked is, "Do I stick my stickers straight onto the photo?" and the answer is Yes I do. PL is all about taking as much or as little time on a layout as you want and I feel sticking my embellishments straight on the photo is a perfect fit for me.

I really do love the matching embellishment kits that each card collection has. The kits has everything you could need for your layout, with stickers, washi tape, wooden elements, alphas and even a coordinating stamp set. You really just need to add you photos and you are done!!

Well that's it for me today. Make sure you pop over and check out what the est of the DT's have come up with this week and I hope you take part yourself!!

Happy Crafting,
