So with back to school in mind I created the layout below using photos of my grandniece and also using scrap patterned paper and embellishments from a project I completed earlier this year. I know that not everyone keeps their scraps from previous projects but I do if the scraps are large enough for another layout page or altered project. This made putting together my layout quick and easy. I didn't have to search for papers or matching embellishments once I settled on my school theme. It was almost like having a page kit ready and waiting.
