To make assembly of the other ten books go faster I designed a page for each topic and then worked on them assembly style. ER's took longer because I designed each page individually, the other books actually look quite different. I am very happy with how it came out and ER loves having it read to her. This is a photo heavy post, but after so much work I wanted to show it off☺ The paper for this page is shimmery and flocked, very cool in person!
We were in Walt Disney World for Valentine's Day but each of the kids still gave her a little Valentine. Since they are her first from classmates, I wanted to save them and this pocket page was my solution. I'm on the hunt for a little embellishment, I think the top looks a little plain.
V.I.P. night, a night time event that each child brought one special person to. Ours had a sports theme. I fit a lot of pictures on it by cropping down each photo and arranging on the pages. I filled in with paper and ribbon.The picture of me and ER from the Mother's Day Tea, that big flower is from the Happy Mail I got from my sweet friend Noelle. It matches the school themed paper I bought perfectly.There were fifteen spaces in our class but we never reached total. We started with three more kids but they moved sessions as other spot opened up. We ended with these eleven kids. Names are give below the picture.
ER and her first teacher, who provided a great first school experience. She was very kind and loving with the kids, sweet and nuturing. ER really loves her.
I love this idea, it's inspired by organizer Peter Walsh. He was on Oprah once and suggested people make photobooks out of their kid's artwork to reduce clutter. I streamlined it even more and fit my favorite projects on one double page layout.
My solution for several random pictures from thoughout the year. Turned out great because it shows several different aspects of preschool.
The books all end with another little pocket page for stashing all the little bits and pieces I want to hang on to from the year. The postcard ER's teacher sent her before school started and an example of how she wrote her name at 3 are in there.
