Project #2 for Chatterscene School Time challenge

This is my 2nd layout for the contest on Chatterscense. You can find more info about it on Chris's blog Get Inspired with ChatterScene! I'm not 100% sure I like the apple at the top. I'm going to add my journalling to it. I don't like posting certain info online so I tend to take a picture and then journal. :) I'm debating on switching it with a half circle at the top. I'll see how I feel after I get my journalling done. I used Plantin Schoolbook for the apple and tag at the bottom. It has an End Caps feature that allows you to create long titles like this. The only problem I had was that it skipped cutting under some of the letters so I had to hand cut parts along the bottom. I also used a stamp from Stampin Up to add "first day" and "of" to the tag. The stamp actually said "first day (on top of) of school" so I had to ink "first day", stamp, clean it, ink "of" and stamp again. And now that I'm done typing this, I'm think I may move the apple to the top left for the year and do my journalling in a half circle on the top right.

Great LO, I love that striped paper! I haven't used the endcaps feature yet but I love your title, so I need to try!
