My First Day... & A Freebie...

I just love this photo of Rainee as we were walking to school on her first day of Kindergarten. She has the most excited smile... I love it!!! It's just too adorable!!!

I don't know about you, but I love Crayons... they make me smile & remind me so much of school days... I've been wanting to use them for awhile... but I couldn't figure out the perfect way to use them, until now. Granted, I did have to figure out how to glue them down... because they made the page sooooo heavy... but I love love love the effect!!! I splattered ink on the background paper & used Creative Imaginations Growing Up collection.... I love love love that line... it has so many fun papers & stickers for K-6grade it's great!!!

Now for a little freebie... the 'report card'.... this is something I made & I love how it turned out... so would like to share it with you... if you'd like a copy to print... click here to download & enjoy!

Have a delightful Wednesday!!!

I LOVE CRAYONS TOO!
REMEMBER IN THE MOVIE "YOU'VE GOT MAIL" HOW SHE LIKED PENCILS? Chris(my hubby) just bought some back to school stuff for the kids yesterday at TARGET they had really good prices, pass it on! He brought home colored pencils but, they are just not the same as crayons!
