Back to School

It's hard to believe, but I am halfway through my time on the Wild Card team at the Card Concept! I was lucky because the styles I have the most difficulty are now over and I can move into the CAS styles! 

The challenge for me this time is free style collage, which doesn't sound that hard until you put a theme to it. Back to school! I have no kids, my nieces and nephews are to old for back to school cards so I had nothing except the odd apple stamp. That wasn't going to cut the paper for me! In dances my BFF, Patricia with a whole slew of BTS stamps!! Yeah!!

I got out my trusty Card Concept primer and read all about freestyle collage. It seems it can be just about anything with unrelated items in a collection. I have all related items- I mean there is a theme here folks! But I kinda added them here and there in a what I hope is pleasing design. I added the red banner strip at the last minute because it seemed more "collage like" with it.

I hope you see the collage here and I would love to see how you would interpret the photo inspiration, theme in a freestyle collage style. I am sure there are many of you who can "school" me on this! Please join us at the Card Concept for this "back to school photo challenge!!
