   September already! Of course I think back to school and therefore our blog hop is focusing on that this month. I haven't always been a scrapbooker. I started making cards and I enjoy that the best, fast and easy but I also have a terrible memory so I find my scarpbooks very valuable to me for this reason.....However I am very out of date with my scrapbooking.... do you scrapbook whatever you like? or do you scrapbook in order? I wish I was an "in order" scrapbooker! I get years all mixed up the way I do it.....anyway because of that I have school photos for YEARS to do..... thanks to the new fundamentals paper and school complements I am getting some done!!

I like to use the group photos because it shows who is in the kids class and who the teachers are...but it does make choosing a layout tricky... I used CTMH's make it from your heart volume 2 layout #2 as a base and embellished from there. Here are some close ups.

And since I was on a roll I thought I would do another.....totally out of order...STILL!! LOL

I used the same layout principle, just different papers from the fundamentals. I did stamp the "grade" in Sapphire ink using a retired stamp set called Rustic Alphabet because it was easier than pulling out my cricut. Here are some close ups....

Here are some pictures of the complements, there are so many and it really makes scrapbooking easier
I hope you found some inspiration with my pages. Next on the hop is Donna's Blog..... Please go see what back to school inspiration she has waiting for you.  We hope you will join us again next month when we will be featuring projects with a Jeepers Creepers theme. So mark October 15th on your calendars and hop along with us.

  1. Nice layouts! Love the school banner and all the complements that you added to these pages.

  2. Love these layouts for school. I have decided it is time to find all my daughter's school pics and put them into one album. Thank you for sharing
