How Much Is Too Much 179

My last layout as guest designer for HMITM. It's been a pleasure to design for them this month
The criteria this time was
Challenge 179 - August 29 school's back
It's that time of year, school is back in let's use
* 1 lined paper
* 7 paper clips
* 9 staples
* and use the primary colours, red, blue, and yellow.

I havn't had the chance to scrap any of Star's school pics yet so this was the perfect opportunity.
I  found some large yellow paper clips and wanted to use them in a different way and came up with idea of fanning them out into a flower shape behind the pic. So then that got me thinking of the staples and how I could mix those up a bit, I actually ended up using 10 red ones and formed a star shape in the title. I enjoyed adding lots of little elements to this layout to make it schooly (if thats a word!)
Lots of scraps from different manufacters including Sass, Cosmo & Echo Park. The lined paper is Collage press

Had lots of fun with this one, hope you all play along too
