Because my two older kids headed back to school yesterday (see below!), I have had "school" on the brain. I thought it would be fun to create a chipboard album full of my son's class pictures from elementary school.
Here is the cover of the book. The books and apple, pencil, row of paper clips, favorite school memories circle are all part of this HUGE set!
I created little tabs on the side to show the different grades. (They are created with JustRite 2" Stamper and 15 pt. font set.)
For once in my life----I am planning ahead!
Ben LOVES his book and I know we will have fun adding the photos and details each year.
For more inspiration with the stamps previewed today, visit Gina's blog as well as Melanie Muenchinger, the illustrator of Sports, School, Spirit.
For even more projects with tonight's two stamp sets, these Senior Design Team Members are participating in previews today: Cindy, Donna, Emily, Erika, Jessica, Lee, Lynn, and Theresa as well as our CenterStage Spotlight Design Team members: Tina Gilliland and Vicki Dutcher
Don't forget about our Release Party on SCS starting at 7pm CST on Thursday, August 27th. There will be contests, challenges, lots of chatter as well as a ton more samples shared by the Senior Design team members and our CenterStage Spotlight team too. We'd love to have you join us!
Back to School-NSR (Non Stamping Related)
Cara started 8th grade and Ben started 1st grade yesterday. They both survived! Cara was happy to go back to school. Ben had a few tears at drop off but quickly recovered.
When I picked up Ben from his second day of school (today) we had this conversation---
Me: How was school today?
Ben: It was the best day of first grade I ever had.
Me: (Deep sigh of relief!) That is wonderful! Why was it so great?
Ben: Because I got to play with Jace at recess and at PE and didn't have to play with any of my emergency friends.
Me: What are emergency friends?
Ben: The friends I play with with Jace isn't there.
Sigh! Where to begin!?
Thanks for stopping by!
