Oh' Boy, It's Back To School

Good Day All,

It's getting close to that time for kiddo's to head to back school. Or maybe some kids have already been back to school for a week. My daughter starts school in another week so she is pretty excited to see all her friends.

Today at Crafty Sentiments we are having our "Back To School" Challenge. I chose an image called "Back To School" it's so neat, little boy with tons of school books ready for the first day to get cracking. :D
Here is my card -
I love the graphic paper behind him and I popped him up with pop dots along with the Back To School signage above. I really like how this turned out, originally it was a card but after I made it I really like this go into a layout page. Thought it would look really nice. :D
