I have a problem with themed patterned paper. No matter how cute it is, I rarely end up using it. Either my pictures end up clashing with it, or it is too theme-y for the layout, or it just doesn't work for some other reason. And it ends up sitting in my pile of unused paper. I've pretty much stopped getting any themed patterned paper unless it has a non-themed pattern on the B-side. That way I know I can use it for more than just the one topic.
This layout uses paper from Pink Paislee's 'Old School' line. I wouldn't normally go for school-themed paper for a layout about a boy and his pet bunny, but the B-side worked perfectly.
