Back to School Day 3

* Scroll down for my Scrap and Stamp Saturday post.
** Giveaways still open here and here.

Well we have reached day 3 of our 4 day Back to School blog hop. I hope you are enjoying it so far. :) Today I have a layout to share with you. Before sending your kids off to school with their supplies...take a picture of the supplies! I only got a picture of Hayden's supplies (he's off to kindergarten!). I forgot to take a pic before my other son took supplies to school this week. I wish I had because Austin had a lot more supplies and it would have been a huge picture. Oh well. Here's the layout I made with my school supplies picture:


It uses papers from Cosmo Cricket. :) I believe they all come from the "The Boyfriend" line. Here are some close up's of my layout:




And now for the RAK. Today's RAK is a collection of goodies: a fabulous album from Punky Sprouts, Some Glimmer Screens and Glimmer Mist from Tattered Angels, some flowers from Prima, and some die cuts from BasicGrey:

Wow, that is a ton of supplies for Kindergarten. I don't think my high school junior needs that much stuff nor my 5th grader.

Never thought to scrap a page about the supplies. Too late for this year, but maybe for our last year next year.
