I am so bad about remembering to scrap portraits we have taken. So I decided to sit and scrap my son's 5th grade school pic before it lost in the shuffle. I just picked up all of these papers from Michaels last week and I loved that they were a little grungier and more grown up looking since this is his first year in middle school.
This kid came home with his pics and with a totally bummed look said, "You are sooo going to think these are the stupidest pictures. If you want me to take them back I can, I don't even know WHAT was up with my smile." I pulled them out expecting him to have boogers hanging out or food in his teeth or SOMETHING with that set up. What was he thinking??? These have got to the best school pictures he's ever taken....EVER! Maybe he just wanted reassurance, so that's what he got because he seems totally happy with them after I told him that :)
I am sharing this with Scrap That Poetry that has a school themed poem up this week. The Pink Elephant also had a Back to School theme running. Then we have Practical Scrappers that is asking for school related project inspiration this month. How kind of them to get together and coordinate their themes. LOL!!!!!
