Biker Chick Corrie Jones shares a more "mature" Back to School Layout with our Makin' the Grade collection...
My oldest started high school this week and it has really taken some adjusting for me. She, of course, is loving it. I just feel old. It really was just yesterday that she was headed to kindergarten! (Well, maybe that was my youngest, and it was Friday that she went, but it feels like yesterday that it was this one.)
I love making banners and for this page, the banner is a good school addition. For this one, I used some pieces from the Paper Crafting Kit and cut smaller, but matching banner pieces out of different papers. I decorated the banner pieces with die cuts from the paper crafting kit and star stickers. I used adhesive to keep the banners in place and then used my sewing machine to stitch it all down and connect it.
My journalling says, " Knowing I'm not old enough to have a high schooler, I asked her to consider staying in 8th grade. She said NO. I'm glad at least she is ready for this." This was a conversation we had had a few times.
Ah, the first day of the year!
