sharing my creativity, one project at a time

That Time of Year Again …

Leave a comment

The month of May is usually very crazy.  My girls are finishing up with school which means finishing up big projects, field trips, Splash Day (think Field Day with water slides) and all of that.  For me it means finishing up the school scrapbooks that I do.  If you go to Becky Higgins website (http://www.beckyhiggins.com/blog/) and go to the “free stuff” tab on the side (scroll down a little) there is something called a “Personal Yearbook”.  Basically it’s an 8.5×11 layout that has been pre-printed for you to use with school age children.  Last year I asked my oldest daughter’s 1st grade teacher (and the other 1st grade teachers) if we could do this.  I had three classes last year that I did this project with.  By the end of the year, other teachers heard about it and I talked to the teachers my girls were going to have this year about it.  This year I have NINE classes that I do this project with (including my youngest’s kindergarten class and 3 different dual language classes).  We are trying to get everything caught up and finished, so this is a glimpse of what my days have looked like lately:

boxes of school scrapbooks (done in 3 prong folders)

ready to stamp with a class

catching up and sorting pages with one of the teachers

 On top of all this, I had a family/infant photo shoot:

So, needless to say, I have no Project Life updates again this week. And might not for a couple more weeks until school is out.  I am excited for summer vacation, though because I’ll have more time to work on PL and our other scrapbooks.  I am also going to work with my girls so they can do their own mini-version of PL for the summer with photos they take themselves (my assistant photographers in training 🙂 ).

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm a mom to 2 girls and 2 dogs. My husband and I have been together for over 17 years (married for 12 of them). I hate saying that I'm a "stay at home" mom, because I'm really not. I spend most of my time at my daughters' elementary school - volunteering, tutoring and (my favorite) scrapbooking with several different classes. I like photography, scrapbooking and general crafty stuff.
