Here's a little design team inspiration to get you started....and check out our the great prize that is up for grabs this month....
Here's my take on the challenge, this is old Primary School, it's changed quite a lot since I went there but I do go and help out there with art and craft now!
I was lucky enough to spend 7 years of my school life, from 11-18, in this gorgeous old building. I don't have a photo of it, (shockingly for a scrapbooker!) so I used a postcard of a painting of the building as it was in the 19th Century - it doesn't look that much different today.
When I think of school (or back to school)...right after school supplies comes first day of school pictures. This year I had these cute little signs for the kids to hold (even my high school senior cooperated!) When I sat down to edit the pictures 80% of them had disappeared. Gone. Poof. Not in the file...nowhere. I was frustrated. I was mad. I thought bad words.
And then I made the kids hold the signs again the next morning and have a second-first day of school so I could take more pictures.
And when I went to edit THOSE pictures, 40 out of 50 had disappeared. AGAIN. So now I knew something rotten was going on. Long story short, (too late, right?) the files were just hidden...not deleted. yay! So now I have them all back, and my kids are happy not to have to pretend for a third day in a row that it's the first day of school. :)
The first day of school is always bittersweet for me. Last year especially, since it marked the end of the pre-school days for our family. The journaling about this day is in the little pocket of my layout.
We hope you will play along with us. Just link your projects in the comment section of this post. Up for grabs this month is a great prize: a $20 gift certificate to Ella Publishing.Boot Camp, a special series of 18 inspiring videos by 4 expert instructors starting on September 19.
