Back to School Challenge

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday! For some of us, summer break has officially ended and the kids are back in school! So my challenge for the month of August is to help you get your back to school photos documented! Our Guest Creative Team came up with some great pages to inspire you.

Christine’s (Christine Irion) page is bursting with fun colors and her layers are just amazing. Each time I look at this page, I find something new!
