Just did the December pages with Porter and his first-grade classmates today. This means we are officially half-way through doing this school scrapbook. The theme we focused on was LUNCH.
Think about it. Lunch is a part of school. Every day. Our kids eat lunch. Do we have pictures of this seemingly mundane but really significant routine in their life? That’s why we wanted to focus on lunch for one of the layouts in this project.
I took a picture of each child eating their lunch in the cafeteria one day last week. That was the main picture and then I also gave them each a 3″ x 4″ print of the cafeteria (wide shot).
Each child got the usual pre-printed 2 pages (which I am sharing here, for those of you doing this), the 2 photos, 2 patterned paper strips, and a month label, which I cut & corner-rounded ahead of time.
In case you are new to my blog or don’t know what I’m talking about, here’s a little background:
The Aug. 31st post is here, titled “school scrapbook” (includes background info, purpose of the project, supplies needed, etc.)
The Oct. 29th post is here, titled “school project” (includes pictures of completed pages so far and also has ALL the downloads if you wanted to do this too).
