Use Your Brain layout

Ok so I broke out my October Afternoon box & created this layout. I have tons of OA stuff which is why it's the only manufacturer that has it's own box. 
This is a layout of the kids first day of school September 2011
The title is something I say to them everyday before they leave for school. I have no idea how or why I started saying this LOL 

The journaling in envelope reads:

I have been telling the kids to "use your brain" before they leave for school in the morning since they started kindergarten. I guess I hope it reminds them to pay attention throughout the day??? 
Aly 11th grade
Mikey 7th grade
Sophia 6th grade

Supplies used:
-October Afternoon pattern papers
     Fly a Kite (dandelions
     Cherry Hill (new apron)
     School House (chalkboard)
-October Afternoon Report card stickers
-MME So Sophie journaling cards
-Twinery Twine (charcoal)
-Maya Road envelope
-AC Thickers (sunrise)
-Ric Rac ribbon in red

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!!


  1. Oh! I am a sucker for school themed papers.
    This layout is so cute. I especially love the witty title.

  2. LOL! I'm going to start saying that as well! My daughter is only 2 and a half but I would LOVE her to parrot that in front of the in-laws!!! Great page. I love OA almost as much as you do- my stash is a little smaller because it seems the collections are always sold out but what I have I use- they are fantastic. Great page- love your design and color palette- I also love the story behind the page.

    1. It's pretty sometimes they say "I know I know, I'll use my brain" LOL
