It's that time of year...

Sadly, it's that time of year when summer has drawn to a close and the back-to-school "fun" begins.  The kids were somewhat excited, but I was VERY sad to see summer end.  Of course, mostly because it meant I had to go back to work!!

As always, hubby has the job of taking the first-day-of-school photos.  Since I can't exactly take the first day of school with my students off to see them on their way, he gets to have that duty.  I had my camera all charged up and ready for him, and he got a few pretty good shots this year.  Here's the layout I created with the Simple Stories Elementary Collection. 

I just love this collection for it's colors and designs.  The stickers are great and the overall design isn't too "little-kid".

Here's a closeup of the little flags I made using a strip of paper wrapped around a wooden skewer that was trimmed to size and some of the cardstock stickers to mark the dates of the school year,
And, it seems like no layout of mine is complete these days without putting at least a few of the banner strips on there somewhere.  I just love making these using my square punch!  So easy and SO trendy and fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I'm STILL not all caught up with everything I've been doing, so make sure you come back soon!
