bring on fall....

I don't know about everyone else but I'm SO ready for fall and the holiday season in general. Recently it has been as hot as 118 degrees and I'm so over the long hot summers we have here.
It's hard to believe my girls have been in school for almost a month now.

This is what I came up with for the girls and their back to school photos using the Teresa Collins Vintage Finds Collection. My girls are SO interested in different things and that is to be expected because of their age difference. Sometimes it's a blessing and then, it can be just like any sibling relationship. The journaling for me was important, capturing what they are interested in, what they have going on this school year, what is different this school year vs. last school year (the significant changes happened with Ellie this year), etc.

I had a lot of journaling and I loved the patterned papers, I did not want to cover them up or print the journaling onto the paper so I created flaps and used my sewing machine to stitch them in place. I loved the outcome.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm so ready for fall too. Nice layout and even nicer pics of your girls. Clever how you hid the journaling.

I have a Junior and a 5th grader so I know what you mean by differences... oh and one is a boy and the other is a girl so there are extra differences!
