first day of fourth grade (the layout)…

A lot of people I talk to about my “job” tend to assume I’m all caught up with my family scrapbooks.  They couldn’t be more wrong.  Here’s further proof of how far behind I actually am:


This is a layout about Josh’s first day of fourth grade.  He is just starting the last term of sixth grade.  Oh well.  I am, however, so glad I blogged about that day – because that’s where my journaling came from – straight from the blog post.  I need to be better about doing those kinds of posts, otherwise, I forget the details (I’m getting too old to remember much of anything these days). 


Anyway, I used products from the brand new “boys only” line by Doodlebug on this layout – I loved the colors in this collection and thought they worked perfectly with these photos.


Not only do the colors work perfectly, but the accents and embellishments were exactly what I wanted for this page.  I’ve linked all of the products I used below so you can check them out if you want to! :)
