First Day of School

I know, I know....I've been neglecting my blog :( But life has been very hectic lately. Actually, September 7th marked my first day back at school. Not only did I go back to work, but I began a new teaching assignment this year in a grade five classroom. So, I have 24 students in my care each day and so far, the journey has been amazing. But enough about my personal life.......

Each year my hubby takes photos of our girls on their first day of school, and each year intend to scrap them. Well, what actually happens is that they go in the "Photos to Scrap" box....a box that is a constant reminder of how far behind my scrap booking projects are!! Well, I finally got the chance to create pages for my eldest daughters first day of JK and SK. She is in grade one now, so I guess I am not doing to badly (but then again I still have Easter 2008 to scrap) Here are the finished products......Thanks for looking :)
