Scrapbooking Global August Blog Hop Memories and More School Days

Welcome to our Scrapbooking global August Blog Hop. 
This month we have a Memories & More theme happening - but wait there's more - a secondary theme of School Days. I picked this theme as I have a plethora of school photos needing to get out of packets and into albums. For this hop we have 18 Scrapbooking Global members hopping with us. If you have joined me from Sara's blog please continue the hop using the next button at the bottom of my page.

So this is page one of a 2 page spread of my eldest daughters graduation day at school - In Australia we have Primary then High school, High school goes years 7-12 after that they can go into the big wild world get a full time job or choose to further their studies in an area they choose. 


I found some sayings I liked off the internet tweaked them to be all fancy with a design program I have and then printed them on Whisper White cardstock. I frequently make my own cards this way as it extends my options. The stack of books are from the Hand Delivered Host set coloured with Stampin' Blends. The photo below is her year advisor - the teacher allocated to what was her year 7 class that then follows them through to year 12 as a support person as well as a teacher. 

What would school be without our friends - it is well known that some of these friendships will last a lifetime. Yes there is a blank Memories & More card there - that is for my daughter to add her friends names to once I had shared my page here. There is a pun included on this page as my daughters 2 best friends have the last name Clover - yes they are twins and they look nothing alike. I traced the school emblem onto Whisper White then fussy cut it for one of the slots and the 2 spares I added some DSP to for some 'texture'.

Here are the jpegs of the sayings for you.


So thank you for stopping by hopefully I have helped inspire you to get your school photos into an album or 2. Please continue on our hop and visit Sue in the UK by clicking the next button below.
