Life is our Classroom Layout

I made this whimsical layout for the My Creative Classroom challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2. You needed to use the word "classroom" in your project. I was inspired to use the word "classroom" because we homeschool, and even though we definitely have "school time" each day, we all know that we are all constantly learning new things with each new experience.

I used Design Studio to cut out the title with Lyrical Letters--one of my favorite font cartridges. So many great fonts on that cart!

The supplies (and part of the LO idea) were from a kit from My Personal Scrapper. Love the colors and patterns.

This big scalloped circle was something new I tried with Design Studio. I made the scalloped circle huge and slid it way over on the mat (on the computer screen) and cut it out.

I used the negative image so I still have this great design element for another layout out of that great lettered pattern:

I added rhinestones and awesome dimensional flower stickers.

The great thing about machine stitching is that it doesn't have to be perfect and it still looks good.
