First Day of School: Freshman!!!

Okay, so I’m a bit behind!  I JUST got around to scrapping this page.  It’s from the first day of school (at least it was THIS school year!).  She was a first day freshman at a brand new school!  Fortunately, she is use to me doing 10 million pics so she didn’t mind me taking pics!  Anyway, yeah, just now scrapped it…terrible parent….blah blah blah…..  stop judging me!!!  LOL.  Hope you like the layout!  I decided to put the pics on different ‘mats’ so that they could each have their own stories without having to do a double page layout.  I am reserving the other page to put her grades on at the end of the year, along with some memories of the year.
I put a list of the classes she is taking for a couple of reasons: 1. to take up space and 2. so we won’t forget.  It’s always nice to flip through a scrapbook and be reminded of something that reminds you of so many others!  For those of you trying desperately to read the caption beside that pic, a stray had done it’s business in our driveway and she dropped her shiny new pencil in it AND stepped in it.  (She is quite talented indeed.)  In our house, we laugh a LOT, so this was just something that made us laugh (her too, we’re not cruel!).  LOL.  I’m still smiling about it, funny stuff!  You don’t get this comedy just anywhere!!!
Used the Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge to cut out the bus, then colored it in with colored pencils.  I wrote a school name on the bus.  The stickers were random school things I cut out.  A good place to get school type embellishments, if you don’t have anything or want to go buy, is anything with the school logo on it, magazines, or even pictures on packaging.  They work and look great!  Trust me, no one is going to turn up their nose and say “is that from a MAGAZINE???”  They will however, tell you how great it was that you thought of it!  LOL.  (That’s when ya point em to the Zoo, LOL)


Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
