Back to School with Heart 2 Heart

Can you believe it's back to school time already...the summer certainly has flown by!!  For this week's challenge I created this cute little mini book to memoralize this school year in pictures.
An Apple for the Teacher - in a unique kind of way!!

The base for my little book is an imitation apple.  I used a bread knife to cut it in half - but beware, there is this really gigantic piece of concrete in the middle - who knew, right - it will most definitely dull a knife blade, so don't use your favorite kitchen knife!!

The pages are created from one of our new paper packets - Typeset (X7139B) which is perfect for school related layouts.  Stamped images from School Rocks (B1396) and Save the Date (D1386) decorate the pages with just a touch of ribbon from the Red Designer Ribbon Collection (Z1615) to complete the design.  You want to be careful about putting to many accessories on the pages or your apple will fall right over from the weight!

I'm looking forward to seeing what you create for our back to school challenge this week.  Be sure to share your final piece with us at Heart 2 Heart.  Best of luck to you and your kiddos this school year!!
