A Homespun Affair Color Challenge

I am such a sucker when it comes to challenges. Since I can't pass a fun one up, I decided to use the challenge to get another lay out done of my Grand daughter Emma's first day in Kindergarten this week. The inspiration came from the Shabby Decor  page in the magazine (which I LOVE!) I might just put the page in a 12" x 12" frame for her.
I started with some OLD paper that was school themed and happened to be perfect for the color challenge. The photos were matted to coordinate with the requested 3 colors and then I found some OLD stickers (does anyone still use stickers) with a school theme.
I completed the page by using ribbon from my stash of left overs and then some colorful yarn thread to bring out the focus colors.
I used the Artiste CTMH cartridge to die cut the buckle frame and the star with the date in it. Little bits of Stickles glitter, gave her page SPARKLE!
Hope you like it and if not........ I at least got to use my OLD stuff up!!! LOL
