Kindergarten days

I am all about creating memories. I am not a great scrapbooker, but I love to take picture! Any kind of props that you can add to the picture to help remember the day helps, especially if its not in a specific place. Almost a year ago, I wanted to do something for Landon’s first day of Kindergarten, so I decided to create a frame, adding the letters to say. “My 1st day of Kindergarten”. At the time, I just added a little clipboard with the school name and the date.

For the end of the school year, I decided to spruce the frame up a little bit. I changed the wording to “My last day of Kindergarten” and then I added Laura Kelly’s buttons collection from Buttons Galore & More

Supplies used:
Sign stakes
DecoArt Americana paint – Calypso Blue
Laura Kelly’s Mix Buttons from Buttons Galore & More
Glue Dots
Lime Rickey Scrapbook paper (purchased at ACMoore)

Instructions for the letters:
I enlarged the letters in Microsoft Word to about 350pt. I printed the letters, cut them out and then traced them backwards on the back of the scrapbook paper. I then cut those out. Make sure to trace them backwards or else your cut out letters will be backwards. I attached them to the stakes with glue dots, that way when it comes time for the first and last days of 1st grade, they can be easily removed!!

After school on Friday, we started the summer off right with a Strawberry milkshake from Chick-fil-a!!

We are excited for summer, even though it is only 6 weeks for us, but we have lots planned!

Until next time…..
