A Note from Carey
When choosing the colors for my back to school layout, I wanted to include the school colors of blue and gold (yellow). I didn't plan that my son was wearing blue shorts, or that the teacher's outfit matched perfectly! Since the photos had so much blue, I kept it as an accent color. I also wanted to tie in the red of my son's shirt, which also completed the triadic color scheme of the primary colors, red, yellow and blue, reinforcing the school theme. To balance the bright colors, I used neutrals of tan and gray. I kept the main colors in small amounts to enhance, not detract from, the colorful photos.

September Fun Fact
After 14 years, I was excited to finally buy new bedding for our bed - gray comforter with gray and white chevron sheets and aqua accents. The best compliment came from my son, who said it looked like a "hotel" bed (made up with all the accent pillows).
