Is the summer really almost over? Tomorrow is the first of September, which means school starts for Donovan in 8 more days. Once school starts, that's it! Next thing you know, we'll be celebrating Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas! OK, maybe I'm jumping the gun a little bit here, but I get excited over holidays. Although I'm not crazy for cold weather, it does mean more indoor time AKA more scrapping time! In the coming months, Ill be able to reveal a big scrappy secret that I've been dying to let you in on. *insert teasing grin*
In the mean time, I'm going to enjoy the last days of summer with my precious boys AKA my main scrap subjects! Speaking of my sweeties, the following layouts, created for gonescrapbooking/examiner, features none other than them!
I used a mix of Pink Paislee papers to create "100 Days Of School". Donovan was so excited about this milestone that he had no problem posing for me.
journaling: It was so cute watching you get excited about reaching the 100th day of school. Your teacher asked the students to bring in 100 of one item and something for the 100th day snack. You brought in 100 pennies and 100 pretzels for the snack mix. After school, you were happy to let me take your picture with that adorable hat you made. age 6 grade K
