Back To The Books

Getting back to school is not my favourite time of year as I love having the children around the house without the busy school schedules, but once they are back we work into the schedule quickly.  I do love taking back to school photos though!

I few years ago I started taking a photo on the first day of school and the last day of school on the front step to show the difference in the children throughout their school year.  They always mature quite a bit through the school year, but the biggest difference is their growth.  I love the Bookworm digital kit with all of the school related embellishments, but what I really love is the colours as they are muted primary colours.

The Brainiac with Bookworm

How exciting!!!  A collection for all of your school memories.

As you may remember, I am new to the scrapbooking part of papercrafting.  I have a pile of my kids’ school memories that need to get into books.  I am not overwhelmed by the process. I figure I will let the paper “speak” to me.  That is exactly what this Bookworm Collection did to me.  It spoke to me when picking a photo.  My daughter spoke to me as well!  When I showed her the picture that I decided on she said, “really Mom, you couldn’t have picked another picture that made me look less dorky?”.

Where does time go?

It is so hard to believe that we are talking about sending the littles (or bigs in my case) back to school already.  Where does the summer go?

Make sure you capture all of the special moments when you are sending them back to learn.  Their grade, the books they like to read, their teacher, their shoe size, their favorite color, etc.

The Bookworm Collection is a fabulous pairing to any layout related to school.
