Back to School layout

Recently,  my mother gave me a container full of old pictures and I took the opportunity to spend a few hours on photo organization.  This photo was a random that was left  on my desk so I decided to scrap it.  After I completed the layout I had to research my digital files to confirm it was my son's first day of school last year, his senior year.  He had this bike for two years, so both Junior and Senior year pics include it.  He recently sold it but not to worry he still has three bicycles and that is still his mode of transportation. 

Here's the sketch I used from Sketches in Thyme.

I used this bicycle once before because it looked so much like his.  I ended up putting it on a pop up card.  I don't think I ever blogged that card.  The image is from the Creative Memories Traveler cartridge.  I am sure I will use it again, but his primary bike is black so I will use different colors.

I love these lockers, they are on a currently free cart in Cricut Design Space called Makin' the Grade.  I added some metallic embellishments to the front of the lock.  It really adds to the cut.

Finally, my son attended a performing arts school, so I included some different images in this banner.  He was a technical theatre lighting major hence the tragedy and comedy mask with the light bulbs.  The light bulbs were neat to make from vellum and metallic card stock. I am sure to use that cut again in a larger size.  They are from the Close to My Heart Artistry cartridge.
