Hi everyone. It's Sherry from http://www.macybella.blogspot.com. It's back to school time and my little one started Pre-K this year. I'm so excited to share this layout I made for him with you. I used Echo Park's Little Boy collection for this project.
Once I had my road built, I cut out a little red schoolhouse. I don't have Recess which has a really cute schoolhouse, so I converted the dollhouse on Kate's ABC's to a schoolhouse. I cut it at 5" in blackout. Then cut the accessories, trimming off the chimney. I used a jeweled brad for the doorknob. I cut the school bell from the Liberty bell cut on Stand & Salute. This was cut at 2" in metallic gold paper layered over brown. I distressed it in a metallic pewter for an aged look. Then I cut pencils from Everyday Paper Dolls at 3 1/2" for the windowsills. I cut these in golden yellow for the pencil and orange for the eraser, then trimmed the eraser off and glued it to the yellow. I used my Copic markers to color the rest. The metal is N4. The sharpened part is E31 and the tip is E25.
The photo mat is cut at 3 1/2" x 5 1/2" in navy and 3 1/4" x 5 1/4" in light blue. The smaller navy mat is 3 1/2" x 2 1/2". The cute little guy is my son, Noah. :)
Little boy is a sticker from the Echo Park Collection. "goes" are rub ons from October Afternoon. The "2" and "School" are cut and shadowed at 3" from Base Camp. I also used crystal stickles on the yellow part of school. You can see how I popped up the schoolhouse and number two for some dimension in this picture.
