Back To School... Pre-school That Is!

Once again what I have been ready to create has lined up with not one but several art challenges.  Sis sent me the cutest photos of Little Bird and Little Hoss leaving for their first day of pre-school.  (It’s Bird’s second year and Hoss’ very first). 
Wanting to show case the photos, I was inspired by Crafting for All Seasons (back to school), Shopping Our Stash (school), Inspiration Avenue (what brings you joy), and Our Creative Corner (forgotten things).  My forgotten stash in this case was a pile of rulers and yardsticks I found while working in the shed.
And with a bit of gluing, I now have a display that I can easily change out year after year.


"World Traveler" cover page

A mini challenge at 'Anything But A Card' has conincided with the start of my "place I've traveled" scrap/photo album.  Using a 6x6 album, each page will feature one country or state I've traveled to -- which at this count is 17 countries and 33 states, plus DC.
In putting my cover page together, I've also used inspiration from 'Simon Says Monday' to use my favorite stamp... or in this case stamps.  The multi-image stamp is from The Montage Collection and the compass star is by Stampabilities.  The paper elements are by EK Success.
I'm looking forward to putting together this little album of travel memories!
