PPPR's Smarty Pants blog hop

Welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Smary Pants Blog Hop..  You should of come here from Melissa's blog, but If you just arrived and want to join the fun, just click HERE..

All of us design team members are creating school/nerdy themed projects using the cutting files from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons store..

I decided to create a fun school themed layout and I will have to find some photos of my kids from when they were school.. Most of you already know that I have three kids, ranging from the ages of 20 to 26..LOL  None of them have been in school for a while now..
But this was fun to create:
Love adding so many cute files to my layout..

How about a few close ups and some details:

I just love this nerdy apple I created using the glasses from the owl in the Little Hoot cutting file and the chunky pencil is from the Back to School cutting file..

I added the coloring pencils cause I though the side could use a little something :) those are in the Primary Supplies cutting file and those tabbed journaling cards, tabbed paper and border are in the Notebook pages cutting file

I love that box of crayons which is also in the Primary Supplies cutting file and so wanted to use that and where you have crayons, you need paper as well right, so added journaling pad which is in the Secondary supplies cutting file.

The stars are in the Best Buddies cutting file and those apples can be found in the Apple Picking Cutting file.
