Even though I'm still battling this flu bug I couldn't pass up linking up for Scraptastic Saturday at Scrapility and showing a latest completed scrapbook page that I just love!
I have school years albums that I'm scrapbooking for both of my kiddos. I'm still a little behind in each one (that's what happens when I have multiple projects going at once - but that's how I roll) but I'm slowly getting caught up. These albums are so much fun to work on and look back at each of their different school years. I think these albums will be a treasure for each of my kids to hold on to and share with their own kids some day. So for each school year I'll include a first day of school kind of photo, their school picture for that year (& class photo) and any special activities that occurred that year, end of year school party/carnival, and their sports activities. Here's a recent page I completed in my daughter's album:
I wanted to especially highlight this photo because I just loved it. So I used a cute chalkboard border paper on the side and put ribbon around part of the photo itself. Some flowers for dimension (since it's my daughter's album for this one) and to highlight the teal color in the title sticker. Then added some fun school stickers and that's one cute first day of school page!
Here's a few other pages from her school years album to give you more of an idea of what I'm including in it:
An earlier page done in the album that I also just love with the vintage looking paper and map back drop.

My kiddos have both enjoyed looking through their albums and what I've completed so far. My son maybe less so now that he's a teenager, but I think one day he'll be grateful that Mom kept a nice book of these school memories for him. And my daughter still loves to go through it with me and give me input on what she wants in there as well as to go down memory lane: "Hey Mom remember that teacher?" "Look at this class picture Mom, remember she was my best friend that year?" These school days scrapbooks are an absolute labor of love.
