Oops...this week got away from me. Sorry I've neglected the old blog here. Truly, it wasn't that busy of a week. (Well the end was....) I have just been busy scrapping and didn't find time to hop on here. ;)

Just wanted to share a page that I did using Ryan's first day of school photos. I used October Afternoon's Schoolhouse line here. Did it for Emma's this week.
I have been loving OA lately! And this line was perfect for my pictures.

The little chipboard pieces were so fun to add to the page. I especially love the little buttons.

I decided I wanted to journal all about Ryan's hopes for third grade. Well, it was pretty funny when I asked him because pretty much all he said was, "I don't have any hopes." (I think he just hopes it's over with quickly so he can get back to summer and just vegging all the time!) But, after a while I was able to pull some ideas out of him. LOL

As you can see, I've joined in on the paint splatter kick. I think I've decided I like it better than misting - easier to control. ;)

Not much else going on here. Hope to have more to share with you later on this week.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. :)

Well, guess that you got a typical 3rd grader response, lol! He's so cute, Anabelle... just as this page is! Love that you used primary colors here!

I just love OA, too, and you really did a fabulous job with this line, Anabelle! Love how your design leads your eye right across the page. The paint splatters and chipboard pieces are adorable. I'm chuckling over Ryan's hopes for 3rd grade. Sounds like both my kiddos. :)
