It's all about School at Use it Tuesday

It's all about School at Use it Tuesday
 If you're not familiar with Use it Tuesday, their mission is to get crafty people using what they already have. So show us your back to school layouts, cards, bookmarks and teacher gifts and join the challenge 

School starts after labor day here, so this layout is from the start of school back in 2010.
Hugh day in our house as all four kids were in some sort of school program.
The background paper is CTMH school day paper pack from back when my oldest daughter was in preschool, she starts 7th grade this year so it's about time I use more of the paper.  The books, scirrors and star stickers are from a school kit I got at a garage sale 4 years ago and the title strips are from a kit I got at big lots last fall.  The only newish thing is the CM border punch that I did on hoarded cardstock  
So on Sept 7th 2010 I had a 5th grader and  3rd grader at Irving elementary
and a pre K and playschooler at River Road Park

This year we span from pre-k to second year of middle school

I hope I've inspired you to use some of your stash and would love to see what you come up with.

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday  Aug 24th. No blog? No problem! Just use keyword USE037 when uploading to an online gallery and leave us a direct link so we can find your creation.
Please make sure to mention you are playing along with us at Use It Tuesday  (a link is great too!)
