25 more days until...

...school starts! Can you believe we're already under a month away from the "back to school" rush?

As much as my girls are enjoying their camps, I'm looking forward to school starting for two reasons:
1) One stop drop-off, same place, same time every morning. Because my overloaded brain can't handle the weekly change-ups from one camp to another.
2) No more fighting over what to wear -- hooray for school uniforms!!!

To get myself back in the school mindset, I created this little School Years mini book for a class at Scrapville:

I used papers from October Afternoon's Schoolhouse collection, along with a great little Library Pocket book kit from Creekbank Creations.

I love the fact that I now have a place to store Avery's school photo from each year and record a few details about her classroom experiences. I also left space on the back of each card in case there's a small piece of artwork or other memorabilia that I want to paste in.

I labeled all the pages using My Little Shoebox Tiny Alphas, and it will take us all the way through 5th grade. (Which I really don't even want to think about -- I mean, really, how could Avery be old enough to be a 5th grader. Why, that would make me, like, ANCIENT?!!!)

Here are the class details in case you're interested:

Date: Saturday, August 6
Time: 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Location: Scrapville, 2304 Stonewall, Greenville, TX
Cost: $25

There a still a few spots left, but space is limited, so if you're local and want to sign up, give Scrapville a call right away (903-454-3323).

Hope to see you there!

Super super cute album! Too bad I live so far away, I would love to make this! Later this year my Sister's family is moving to Rockwall, only a 40 minute drive instead of 4.5 hours. TFS
