Back to School.....

.....with October Afternoon! They have come up with yet another great range of papers, this time with a retro school theme, called Report Card. I was lucky enough to receive some to work with, and decided to scrap my son's love for books and reading:



I chose one of the patterned papers as my background, then added a second background of Bazzill cardstock on which to scrap the main design. I used vertical and horizontal strips of patterned paper, placing a strip of the Recess PP at an angle.

The collection comes with a great sheet of stickers, I chose the journaling spot sticker as a background for my title, layering it with the photo and another sticker:



I added a few more stickers and brads as accents, and finished with a strip of gorgeous velvet ribbon (find more here), and a handmade embellishment of stitched button and chipboard star (similar here):
