A Note from Jennifer
I finally got started on my sons’ school scrapbooks. This is the 4-page layout for my younger son’s Kindergarten years. I took inspiration for the scrapbook idea and page design from Cathy Zielske in the book Clean and Simple 2 and Stacy Julian's The Big Picture. One page for thee school photo and details (grade/teacher/school), one page for photos from the year plus journaling, one page for class picture, and one pocket page for various representative school and life papers from the year. I used the same basic layout and line of products for each grade. I have finished 2 grades completely and just have to select and print photos for the other 3 years. By the way, my son helped me pick out the products, photos, and papers for the pocket page—perhaps my favorite part of finally starting this project was getting my son to help me!

September Fun Fact
My younger son is now in 5th grade, so these papers and photos have been sitting around for 5+ years. Since my One Little Word this year was DO, I used that word to motivate me to finally start the albums. So if you have wanted to do a school album but are worried it is too late to start, trust me: it can be done!
