Back Porch Memories GDT & Challenge

I am thrilled to be a guest designer at Back Porch Memories this month! I got this darling kit to work with. It's the Solo Kit from MME
Isn't it cute?  Such fun colors!
I have to wait to show you 2 of the layouts until after the 10th but I can show you this one I created for a challenge.  First, here is the challenge I issued:
  With it being Back to School time I thought I'd issue you a challenge with the theme in mind. When I think of school I think of

So with that in mind, my challenge to you is to create a layout with this in mind. Use each of the alphabet and numbers and create your own recipe. You can use what I came up with or create your own, it's up to you. Here is what I chose:

A - Arrows (I covered one with pp and sanded off the edges and the other I misted and wiped off. Isn't that cool how the grid comes through?)
B - Buttons
C - Chipboard (one of my middle buttons is from chipboard as well as my arrows)

1 - doily
2 - enamel dots
3 - bows from twine
Here is my layout:
Be sure an stop by and play along.  You have until September 30th to post your layout at Back Porch Memories.  And you don't have to use the kit, use anything you want. 
I also, wanted to use this layout for Crafty Creations at The Memory Nest
