First Day of School

Happy Wednesday!

First of all, I have to say that the amount of comments I have received from the American Crafts blog hop has blown my mind! I am so humbled by the amount of wonderful feedback I have received (and thank you even more for the sweet things most of you said about my son's art work-I am truly touched!!)

In fact, I am SO blown away that I have decided to pick three comments for a little something from me, so make sure that you comment on THIS post-you have until tonight (Sept 21) Midnight EST to be eligible). And don't forget to check back to the American Crafts blog today to see if you are one of the two lucky winners of two complete lines from our new releases!

In the meantime, I am sharing another LO using my AC goodies.
This LO is the start of Little Man's grade 1 album-I rarely scrap in any order, but I am trying to stay on top of this album-I guess we will see  if I can keep this up ;)

The photos are at home before we left for school (complete with lunch bag, back pack and our new friend 'Boo Boo Bear') and then a very quick shot of him before I got chased out of his new classroom (by my darling hubby at that).

I was happy to find an ambundance of apples in my sticker book from the Daydreams line. I added some fun patterns in primary colors which made putting a 'school' LO together easy peasy. I also used papers from the Amy Tangerine line (stars) and from the Hollyday line (polkas).

Design Note:
**I also left a pocket behind my pictures to include his welcome letter from his teacher.
Supplies: 12x12 Cardstock White (71081) - AC Cardstock, 12x12 Cardstock Peacock (71471) - AC Cardstock,
