Back 2 School

This week my kids headed back to school and they were looking way too cool! I try to capture these pics each and every year, its a good reminder. This time I remembered to add some identification cards with information like their height, weight and grade. It will be interesting to look back at these when they have kids of their own!

I am also entering this layout in the Back to School challenge at Heart2Heart Challenges Blog.

I used some older Typeset papers and canvas compliments. There is some really cool "new" products on here though. Check out those hounds tooth irresistibles chipboard letters inked in black and ruby. I doodled "school" on a chalkboard label using the chalk marker and finally finished it off with the black & white grosgrain ribbon and some strips of Moonlight paper.

As I was filling in the "school" letters on the chalkboard label, I was thinking about all the really big chalkboard signs at Chili's restaurants. The restaurants are super colorful and I don't think it's really chalk, but made to look like chalk.

How cool are these canvas stickease. Ironically only 2 came on the sheet and they both had the first initial of my children. This one for my daughter says R is for rabbit, she was born in the year of the rabbit and I used stuffed bunnies to decorate her nursery, crazy right?!

Be sure to share your back to school projects over on Heart 2 Heart this week!

This layout is great, I love the pictures too. I started doing these pictures also when my kids were little, I wish I kept up with it when they became teenagers though!
