This is my new scrap table I found for $20 last week. Everytime I sit down at it, I can’t help but have the thought, “Man! God sure loves me!” I’m 34 years old, and He still understands my addiction to ink pens and markers and stamps like no other.
This page was created using mostly items from Becky Higgin’s School Years Kit of the Month. As you all know, I’m totally in love with this kit. It got me orderly, organized, and going. It has 12X12 pockets for “stuff” you want to keep, and it just makes it fun to get all their handwriting and school memories recorded. There are LOTS of journaling prompts to help you remember little things you might not otherwise remember to write down, like “transportation”.
The journaling and little star stamp (tabs) were from other stamp sets. The round “facts” buttons were from my stash.
LOVE the big sticker letters that match the paper.
Okay, so I got Red’s layouts down that I always do around the kids birthdays. His was in June. Hopefully, I can get one year done for each of the other two before school starts, but I doubt it. I look for photos and print one week. Organize and cut one week, think about layouts a few days, and then glue and journal a couple days. But, now I can keep it floating without having to clean it every time the kids wind up on the guest bed! See the cool lamp? I got it consignment a few days ago. It has high and low clicks, so I can work even if they are sleeping in there…if I’m quiet! I got all the wooden boxes consignment as well. I bought a very old cookie sheet yesterday to use as a magnetic board, but I’m still working on the walls and storage for the room to make it cozy again around the table.
