School Memories Book
by Wendy

Hello everyone, it’s Wendy here from Scrappy Bags!  Happy Spring and believe it or not, the end of school is almost upon us.

My daughter has had a wonderful teacher this year for fourth grade and I was privileged to be one of her room moms for the year, so I wanted to do something extra special for her teacher.

I came up with putting together a scrapbook featuring each child on a page.  One beautiful spring day, I got my clearance from school principal and went in to recess to get a picture of each child.   I was lucky — they all cooperated and gave me great big smiles.   Got it done in one visit!

I printed all of the pics out in a 2 x 3 size. I already knew that I was going to use a SN@P binder from Simple Stories for this project.  The binder is a simple 6x8 three ring binder.  Very easy to work with!  I also picked up the Smarty Pants line of scrapbook paper by Simple Stories.  I love their paper and this was perfect for school memories!

For each child, I have the picture and I also added a small piece of paper for journaling.  Each child will jot down their favorite memory from this year.  This is all in the works at the moment.  Hope you enjoy some pics of what I’ve completed so far.  Enjoy!

Wendy is a stay at home mom living in Hershey, Pennsylvania, also know as the sweetest place on earth!  

She loves creating memory books and cards and would spend my whole day scrapbooking, but I do need to make time to take care of my family.  You know, those fun things like laundry, cleaning the house, etc.  

In March, 2012, she had the privilege of going to NYC as part of Martha Stewart’s Dreamers into Doers to attend some workshops and the live taping of her show.  She enjoyed meeting lots of wonderful entrepreneurial women.
