Back 2 School

Happy Sunday!
Things are jumping around here. I have another scrapbook page to share but first I want to let you know that I will likely be MIA for most of the week.

Why? ........Cause I am getting ready for the Heart to Heart Alzheimer's Card Drive that will take place on my blog one week from today.
What is it? A joint effort of the most amazing and generous companies and designers to provide a MASSIVE blog candy which will be awarded to one person who takes part in the card drive for Alzheimer's caregivers.

All I can say is that it is gonna be HUGE.

So excited!!!

Be sure to stop by on Sunday, September 26 for all the AMAZING details!

Now onto some scrapification--My three kiddos started school a few weeks ago and I made sure to take the traditional first day group shot in front of the house. But, this year, I also took some close ups of them getting ready to leave.

I just loved how they turned out because their expressions capture all of their emotions....so I had to scrap them--
I used several new lines of October Afternoon on this---Seaside, Campfire, Schoolhouse and Modern Homemaker. They all work so well together. I paired them with some Report Card shape stickers and Wild Cards and some Mini Market Stickers.

To create the title--I cut the bus shape from some patterned paper and then added the lettering and some wheels. If you look closely, you can see I used two letter"o" stickers from the Report card line to make the wheels and then just added some buttons in the centers. Here is a close up of the title:

I layered some wild cards and a sticker above my journal block:
Materials used: October Afternoon--Patterned paper- Seaside:Seashells; Schoolhouse: No 2. Pencil; Campfire: Tent Trailer; Campfire: Camp Stove; Modern Homemaker: Party Line; Stickers--shape stickers-Report Card; Mini Market Stickers-Green & Cream, Red & Cream; Wild Cards--Report Card.
Buttons, olive ink (SU!); sponge; sewing machine

Thanks for stopping by today!

Ok - I've seen a lot of scrapbook pages in my time, but this, Cammie, THIS is senSAtional. I adore the tight shots on your babies' sweet faces, their smiles, and of course the DPs you selected, the LO and embellishments. Even my 12-year old loved it. You earned the Divine Seal of Approval today.
