Back to School Scrapbook Layout

Happy Monday! Last week was such a busy week. My boys started school and I cannot believe that I have a second grader and a kindergartner. My boys are getting so big. Today I'm sharing a layout of my oldest son's first day of second grade.


To make this layout, I used the Freckled Fawn's August sketch as a starting point. I added a few twists to the layout and decided to use just two photos instead of three. This layout was very simple to make. I just adhered some washi tape to the top and bottom corners of my layout. Then I adhered my photos. I added some journaling lines and then my journaling. Once all of that was in place, I put all of my embellishments around the photos and added some on top of my photos.


I tried to use embellishments that matched the colors of my photos. I love the hint of glitter on some of the chipboard stickers.


I loved making this layout and documenting my son's first day of school. Be on the lookout this week for the Project Life layout of my youngest son's first day of Kindergarten.

Supplies Used:

Are you ready for Back to School season?

Until next time...
