Back 2 School!

I've got back to school on the brain as the boys all start on THURSDAY! Can it really be that the summer is almost over? It seems like it just started! Add to it that my baby will be a big kindergartner this year and gone all. day. and it's just about sent me over the edge. Case in point: we had a back to school bash tonight at their elementary as well as back to school shopping and Turner's first swim lesson. Only two got accomplished. Guess what was left out? Yep. Mama of the Year forgot the school bash! Oy! But I am calling first thing in the morning to see if there is any way between now and the beginning of school that C can at least meet his new Kindy teacher. I feel terrible!

But speaking of Back2School - I wanted to share this with you all. It's a little mini album I did for the latest issue of Scrapbooks Etc. I love this Maya Road chipboard album and thought it made the perfect way to document the first day of school!

I hope you enjoy it and Happy End of Summer to all!






Supplies: Maya Road Chipboard Album, KI Memories Softies & Lace Cardstock, Prima PP, Uniball Signo pen (white), Pentel pen (black), Offray ribbon, Bazzill CS, Doodlebug alpha stickers, Colorbox (Clearsnap) chalk ink, BasicGrey chipboard

This couldn't be cuter Kelly! I just can't seem to wrap my head around back to school either. Hope your little guy can meet with his teacher...I'm sure they'll let him.
Hope it all settles in and goes terrific for your boys on Thursday.
Hugs, Cheryl
