I was lucky this year to be in the Chicago area for my grandsons Jacob and Cole's first day of school. I started first with scrapping Jacob's first day of 4th grade and soon will do a page on Cole and a page with both of them. Jake was starting at a brand new school and was a bit nervous so I added some heartfelt journaling on the page for him. He has since told me his new school is "good".
I used this great sketch from Frosted Designs:
I used Basic Grey's Oxford collection which I just love for older children's school pages and am entering it into their current weekly blog challenge which you can see HERE.
I found a great new-to-me site.....Blog Quick Quotes and am entering it into their Friday Challenge #5 -- single photo challenge.
I am also entering it into Scrapbook Circle's "Get Wordy" challenge. I made a new year's scrappy resolution last January to do more journaling on my layouts. At first it was hard but it is coming much easier now and I think it makes the pages more meaningful.
