The Challenge:
Use apples in your layout

Well, this seemed like the perfect challenge for scrapping Kayla receiving her teaching license in the mail!  I am so proud of this girl.  She has wanted to be a teacher since she was 2.  And kids just love her!  They are always drawn to her.

I fussy cut the different embellishments from patterned paper and used Stickles and Crystal Effects to help them stand out.

I also used the Sketchy Thursdays sketch as it was a great one for my two little photos and had a large space to journal in.  I like how they made it easy to incorporate the title into the journaling.

The layout(only one page this week):
