School Days layout

I went scrapbooking with my some friends last weekend.  I've given up on scrapping all of my pictures (I'd never keep up!), but I try to scrap big trips I go on.  I haven't been on any trips lately, so I decided to scrap my pictures from school--the staff and class pictures won't fit in a regular slide-the-picture-in-the-slots album.  This is the title page I made:

I actually used the design from the cover of a stack of paper by The Paper Studio for inspiration.  The word "School" is from Opposites Attract.  "Days" is from Cursive 101.  The apple is from Doodlecharms.  The pencil is from Locker Talk, but I was using my Gypsy and didn't have the manual with me, which is helpful sometimes to figure out layering.  To make a long story short, I tried stretching an image on the Gypsy, it didn't turn out so well, and I had to make a few "adjustments" with a scissors.  So, this pencil doesn't quite look like either of the ones on the cart.

This page will be entered into the following challenges:
Paper Cutz Challenge #92--teacher appreciation
