I am working on my youngest son's 1st grade mini album. I know that the year is not over yet, but I wanted to get a jump on it! This time I used an Crayon as my basic shape for the album. So far I have made 4 school albums in the shape of a School Bus, School House, Chalkboard, Apple, and now a Crayon. I have started making a pencil for my other son's school album.
For the ease of completing the albums I have kept the format of all the albums the same. I usually make 5 pages and use all the same fonts and embellishments (pencil, notebook paper, paperclip, and binder clip). On the front cover, I keep it simple and just put my son's name and grade.
I still need some addition photos and his report card before I can say I am completely finished with this year's mini album - but I am so close, it feels good! Summer will be here before I know it, and all my crafting time will be limited. I am currently working on my other son's school mini album (pencil) as soon as I finish it up I will post!
