School Days Layouts

Isn't he adorable? Elijah will be starting Kindergarten in the fall so I created this layout to express some of my feelings about that. Journaling reads: Sometimes, I wish you could stay my little boy for just a little longer. That you weren't really starting Kindergarten in the fall. That you would stop growing up so fast! But mostly, I really just wish you a smooth & happy transition as you start school this fall...oh, & that I don't cry like a baby on your first day! Love you!

Wow, Cindy!
Love these layouts. Very boy and very girl. Love the way you used the swirl chipboard for the shine of the star, and the creative use of the tabs on the "2nd grade" layout. I agree with you on the fact that our children grow way to fast. I'm happy for them, but I just want to make sure I'm enjoying every minute of every stage with them. - Julia
