Back to School Already?

We hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Since today is Sunday, that means we have another theme for this week. There are a whole bunch of kids out there who aren't very excited that the start of another school year is just around the corner. As teachers, it only seemed appropriate to have "back to school" as this week's theme. Hopefully we'll be able to go "back to school" soon, too...
So, for today's project, we decided to make a scrapbook layout commemorating the first day of school.
This is a little 8x8" layout, with just enough room for one of those infamous "First Day of School" pictures. Those that we look back at and cringe. The little piece of paper has a blank for the grade, so it could be used for any kiddo. I really like the look of the chalkboard- I think the embossing markers add a nice, somewhat realistic, touch!
We've linked it to the Back to School challenges at CWC here and SOUS here.

Thanks for stopping by today. Join us tomorrow for a "Welcome Back" gift for the teacher.
