Welcome to this month's Shape Challenge!

I can't believe its August already! I'm not sure about our international friends but here in the US - its Back to School time whenever you go into the stores. Well I haven't had any reason to buy school supplies for years (I do have a boy starting Kindergarten this year - yay) but I am just for some reason attracted to the sales and things you can stock up on during this time! All those office supplies at a great discount - how can I resist? I buy things like file folders, paper clips, binders, tons of glue and markers and crayons, you name it - I want it!

What's this story have to do with the Shape Challenge? Well - this month I challenge you to use some office/school supplies on a layout! Let me see those pens, pencils, binder clips, staplers - whatever you want to use - but use at least 5 of these items! :)

Here are a few kits I found in the store that contained items you could use if you don't have any in your stash. Here they are:
Hailee Girl - Andrea Gold (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/hailee-girl-p-3576.html) {the clips in this one jumped out at me!}
It's Elementary - Created by Jill (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/its-elementary-mega-page-kit-p-9500.html) {adorable BTS kit}
School of Thought - Outside the Box Designs (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/school-of-thought-p-11321.html) {supplies in art journal styling}

*I'll be back soon with some inspiration for you*

I quess back in the sixties you didn't have all that fantastic colored school materials, but I loved these little boys, waiting for the schoolbus!
It reminds me of my younger brothers ;-)

I went a bit different this month, hope that's okay. It's my son's school schedule, sized so I can print it out and put into a planner. It also has no photos, hope that's okay.

Just as an explanation if anyone is curious, he is virtually schooled which means it's public school, but he works from home on the computer. The classes with times are live classes with various teachers except for Speech Therapy which is in person. The classes below are also done on the computer, but can be done at any time and involve the typical text books, assignments, etc..
