Back to School...

...is a very popular theme at the moment.

The folk over at "TOMIC" have set this theme for their challenge #13 and the folk at "Totally Tilda" have gone for the same theme for their challenge #30.

I decided to make a mini book rather than a card as this would be easier to incorporate all the elements set by the folk at 'TOMIC' - school related Magnolia images (I had to improvise here...I used my ornament Tilda and coloured the ornament to look like an apple), ruler, booknotes, school words (study, classroom, locker) and some metal (plenty of paperclips LOL).
This is quite a photo heavy post.
An apple for the teacher...
Paperclips...
Plenty of pages for school photos...
Books...
Book notes...
More paperclips...
A staple...
Paperclip & stickers.

I've been using up stash again. In January last year Artbase had a big clear-out sale and I picked up a lot of kits from classes/crops that I had attended previously. This was a BoBunny class kit (I had attended the class approx 18 months before and had enjoyed the inking and style of the project) - at sale price I thought it would be great to do another one...and it has sat in my stash ever since **hohum - rollseyes**. However, it has been perfect for these challenges so I've made a minibook using the materials from the kit and added a Tilda. Hope you like it................

Oh yes, I love it! It's brilliant Toni!! The colours would as easily for a boy or a girl and would make a lovely record of a first year at primary.
