Hey everyone, it’s Laura Vegas here with you today! This is the time of year when so many of our kids head back to school, and for my youngest daughter, that day is today. Yep, today Sarah is off experiencing her first day as a sophomore in high school. And as always, I took her “first day of school” photo before she left this morning. Today, I want to share her photo from the first day of her freshman year in high school, taken a year ago.
Supplies: Cardstock: American Crafts, Core’dinations; Patterned paper: Simple Stories, My Mind’s Eye, Little Yellow Bicycle, Crate Paper; Alpha/Number stickers: Studio Calico, Bella Blvd; Punches: Fiskars; Enamel dots: Doodlebug; Die cut machine: Silhouette; Font: 2Peas Tasklist
I usually document that first day of school photo at the beginning of the school year, which means my journaling is kept pretty simple, and most likely includes the standard “I think this will be a great year”. This time, I decided to document her first day of school photo at the end of the school year, which allowed me to journal specifically about how her year went.
It’s not often that I have this much to say on a layout. I really wanted to make this page about the photo and the journaling, so I kept the page pretty simple overall. It’s paper and stickers, and that’s about it. I thought about adding a few simple embellishments at the end, but decided that it was perfect for me just the way it was.
If you have “first day of school” photos from previous years that you’ve never gotten around to scrapping, why not try summarizing how your child’s school year went that year on a layout with those photos. Or save your “first day of school” photo that you’ll be taking this month, or next, and hold onto it until the end of the year, making note of all their accomplishments during the year that you’d like to include on the layout.
