School is Cool- SOUS die cut reveal

Another Friday and that can only mean its Die cut reveal for us girls over at SOUS.. What will she come up with next you ask?...LOL 
I know school has started for many of our kids and so for this Friday our Leah chose our die cut challenge and the theme for is:


My kids are all out of school.. My boys are in trade school and my daughter is working.. I had a lot of fun going through old school photos and decided it was time to scrap my son Adams middle school photo, I chose the black and white photo to really make the colors on the layout pop..

so, here is my layout:

I actually created the background paper for this layout myself.. 
It was really easy using Cricut Craftroom, a few cartridges and my Cricut Imagine..
Using George and Basic Shapes cartridge, I stretch some rectangle shapes from top to bottom, adding different widths, then filled em all in with different colors from the Kate's Kitchen cartridge.. then using the Print only option, I was able to create my own papers.. go me!! LOL

How about a few close ups:
I added some white marker for detail, like the GLUE text on the bottle..

I found this cute title on the Locker Talk cartridge..

My son Adam, he's the youngest of three.. 
sported some long hair back then..LOL

The back pack also from the Locker Talk cartridge..

I wanted to add a few die cuts for school and thought these were the right ones..LOL

and for supplies used:

Cricut Craftroom for design
Cricut Imagine: printer and die cutter

Imagine cartridge:
Kate's Kitchen for colors 

Regular cartridges:

George and Basic Shapes:
rectangles, stars and circles

Locker Talk:
glue bottle, scissors, books, title phrase and back pack

Plantin Schoolbook:
scalloped edge

White and black cardstock
white marker pen
foam dots
