Well, it’s that time of year again... the days are getting shorter and nights are getting cooler. It must be time to go back to school.
You may have a child starting kindergarten, going to their first day of preschool, their first year of high school, beginning college, or you might be the one going to school. Wherever you are in life, it is a great time to take a moment and document that special day.
Supplies:Indie Chic-Nutmeg:Zig Zag patterned paper, Rainbow patterned paper, 6x6 pad;Indie Chic- Ginger:Spice patterned paper;Nostalgia:decorative brads;On the Bright Side-One:Polka patterned paper,White Wood patterned paper;The Sweetest Thing-Bluebell:stickers,title,label stickers,wood button,decorative brads; Six by Six 2-School Daze:6x6 pad,Lush: black chipboard letters;Misc:circle metal tag rims, stapler, black machine thread, ink and pen.
Instead of the typical “Back to School” title, I thought it would be fun to use the new “Sweetest Thing” Bluebell title – “Good for One Free Smile”.
I don’t know about yours, but my kids are getting to the age where they literally think it is painful to pose and smile for photos.
These photos were no different, AND they were worried about being late on their first day of school. So, I coaxed them along and they were kind enough to cooperate and let me get a few shots. We also did a silly group shot, as you can see.
So, needless to say, I LOVED this title ticket – I think need a bunch of these to whip out at our next family photo shoot!!
Tip: Instead of using expensive foam pop dots (if you are like me – I always run out of them because they are used so often) – use the leftover chipboard after you’ve punched out your chipboard stickers. Simply cut it to the desired shape, peel off the backing, and stick it on the back of the embellishment or sticker you want to pop off the page.
