Moniek- School Album

For both of my children I have made an album for their school photo's. I made a sketch which I used for all the pages. On the left page I scrapped the portrait photo and on the right page is the class photo. On the left page, next to the photo, I listed all the important things that happened during this school year and used several brads to highlight the different topics. Below the class photo, I've written all the names of class members, because in a few years I'm sure we will have forgotten a lot of the names.

I have kept the design of the pages rather simple and used a lot of Scenic Route and KI papers in both albums, since they have lots of colors that fits perfectly with school pictures. Every year, when Tim and Bette bring their school photos home, I only have to make another spread based on the same sketch. There is no stress, not a lot of work and their school photos are all in one album!

I really like that idea. I have 3 kids and have been looking for a way to have just a record of their school years outside of their regular scrapbooks.

That's a really great idea!
I hope, I will remember your Idea, when one day I will be mother of a sweet child.

Kind regards
