I found these photos from Jonah's first year of preschool (2003-2004) and thought he was so CUTE back then. Notice his hair! He cut his own hair the night before Picture Day! (I scrapped the 8x10 portrait already - to better tell THAT story!) And yes, although we have homeschooled since 1999, I still sent THIS child out to preK for 2 years! The "hair cut story" is just the tip of the iceberg!
My inspiration for this layout was a Becky Fleck PageMap (pictured). The sketch is on Becky's Blog as a CK Call. I had thought to enter the contest, but failed to read the fine print which said it was for the May/June issue. A school layout is not appropriate for a spring issue! That's why you get to see the layout today!
To create the layout, I used part of the Edger from the School Days Collection. I cut it apart and only used about half if it. I inked it up to give it dimension, and then added some sticker numbers to the book spine for the date. I also used the transparency from the School Topper for my title. I also added some red and black Twirly Gigs around my journaling block (circle?).
Thanks for looking!
