Sketch N Scrap Layout Challenge #139

We have been celebrating World Card Making Day at Sketch-N-Scrap all month long and there have been some great sketches to play along with. Today however I have one of our regular layout sketches of the month.
I've had these photos since the beginning of school and this sketch worked great with the photos. The second grade got moved to second floor of the school this year. That means lockers. Like the big kids. They were pretty excited.

Sketch N Scrap 5th Birthday Bash Sketch #4

Today I have the 4th special sketch for SNS's 5th Birthday Bash.
This whole card started with the red wood grain banner. I had previously cut it out for something else that I never used it on. With the sketch in hand I was determined to make that precut banner work. I paired it with some other papers in my scrap stash. The banner is from Claudine Hellmuth and the stamp is from Sizzix.
