School Days Mini Album

Joy says, KAYA!


This is only the 2nd time I've submitted a LO for this blog but when I saw the challenge, I knew I had to share this mini-album I made a couple of weeks ago. Great timing, 'no? It was the first time I made one. It's a 4x7 mini-album. I designed the pages digitally in Photoshop, printed, cut and glued to cardboard. The journaling prompts were typed in but I asked DS to write his answers himself. It is after all about his year at first grade.

- Photoshop CS2
- digital papers & elements from Back 2 School collab kit at ScrapArtist.com
- matte photo paper
- cardboard
- eyelets for the front cover
- spray adhesive
- book rings

Hi Joy, what a great idea to let your son fill in the blanks. I'm sure he loves looking through the album.

This is such a fab idea... letting your son write down his own answer. I love it! I can't wait for my daughter to start learning how to write so I can do the same. Sadly, it'll still be quite a wait considering my daughter is only 2-yrs, 9 mos right now :(
