Back to School! (And a freebie homeschool/ school printable!) August 19, 2012

Just in time for back to school, Mommy Made This and Amy’s Designs have teamed up to bring this fun school themed kit.  There are plenty of fun elements and papers in these two kits, and they work great together.  Check out the page I made with it.   Living in Africa doesn’t provide too many opportunities for Grandpa and Grandma to read stories to the kids, but one day Grandpa and Grandma read some bedtime stories to Judah, and now it’s something he begs for.  (Next up: Virtual babysitting!  😉 )  I had so much fun making this page!

Here are the kits, which can be picked up at Scraps-n-Pieces (both of them 50% off the first week!).

…And finally – I made a printable that can be used for homeschooling or to decorate a homework area.  One has a Bible verse – “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge” (a good reminder of me of our priorities in schooling!) – but I also made a blank one that you can add your own verse or quote to, or even laminate and use as a homework planner or whatever.  I threw in a freebie word art of the Bible verse, too – it’s a bit fancier looking than the one of the printable; I decided I wanted something a little more “fun” for the printable, but hey, maybe someone can use the word art, so download that if you want.  You can download them here.  Any comments would be appreciated!  🙂  (Also, please let me know if the download doesn’t work – I’m trying something new and hoping it works!)

Adriana’s Cafe has a new kit in the store. The new addition to both stores is “Our Life In A Year: August”. “Our Life In A Year” is a collection of kits made specially for those who loves to scrap in a Project 365 style. For August the theme is summer vacation, but you will find many more uses for this kit!  “Our Life In A Year: August” is on sale at STS and SNP for $2.79 for the first week of release. Adriana also has a coordinating glitter styles pack exclusive to STS.

Here’s a page I made with the kit – I can’t believe my baby is over a year already!  Scrapping these pics of her as a one week old brought back so many memories!!

Adriana’s creative team also made some freebies for you – participants are listed below and their names are linked to their blogs.  I’m sorry mine isn’t up – I’ve been having some computer problems lately, and I haven’t been able to scrap anything lately because of it!!  😦  Hoping to get it fixed soon.
