Pocket Scrapping | School Days

I’ve had a 6×8 album for a while now, but haven’t done anything with it.
Using a few packs of Simple Stories page protectors and some Project Life cards, I’m beginning to turn it into a school album for The Boy Child.
Referring back to this blog and our Project Life albums, I’ve a pretty good idea of how The Boy Child’s school years have gone in detail.

Like when he came out of school that very first day and exclaimed, “It was brilliant and I had sausages for lunch!”

Like the times he was nervous about performing in front of a room full of parents.

Like the relationships he had with his then Headmaster and friends.

Like how cheeky he looked when he started Year 1.

 Like the time I went into school to take photos for the PTA calendar.

The good thing is that this is a quick-fix kind of album.  He has his traditional albums fulls of 12×12 pages recording every stage of his life, but this is somehow much more tactile.
Words + photos = scrapbooking.
I love it.

  1. You can never have too many albums. It doesn't matter what size they are each one will hold different memories for you and for him, and they will be there long after you are all gone… wonderful


  2. Brilliant! Recording their story is so important – as someone who has so little information about her childhood, it will be wonderful for him.
