In The Spirit of Sending My Little One Back to School Today...

Here are a few layouts I worked on to try and catch up on her school scrapbooks. I have fallen way behind. These were from 2nd & 4th grade. Today was her first day of 6th grade. The bottom layout where the large pink flower is, actually spins. They look so much better in person.
Sorry for the poor quality of the photos. They were taken with my cell phone.
Before I found my digital camera again.

I would like to point out that you may notice some of the layouts don't have any photos. That is because I chose to use one to describe what her schedule was like in a day and the other I used to display her report card.

In the layout containing the star student portfolio I actually miniaturized many of her test papers & assignments and put them inside the portfolio pocket. I can't tell you how many times we take them out to look at them. My daughter likes seeing her grades and I love seeing her "little girl" handwriting. I also made good use of those index prints I received when I developed the photos. I love using those to custom make jewelry, in lockets and in film strip formation.

I love incorporating those kinds of details in my scrap pages.
Those days may be gone but I have captured many special moments & memories in preserving it not only in photos but using her handiwork.

I hope you enjoyed viewing them as much as I did creating them.
