1st day of school/ Back to school blog hop/ And Giveaway!!

Good morning everyone!! Hope your mornings going good.
Well I'm happy to say that I'm participating in a back to school blog/youtube hop. The theme is back to school and its being hosted by Crafty Meggy. There are a bunch of other amazing ladies participating as well!! I will have all there links at the end. Please go by and check all of there videos and blogs out!

The photo on my layout is from last year casue I still need to get mine from this year printed. lol yeah I'm a little behind.

I stuck close to primary colors with my layout. My boys look goofy! They hate posting for pictures, so every year when I try and get them to pose for the 1st day of school I always get a big cheesy smile. But I love it! I really used scraps for this layout. I have a bin in my scrappy room that is just for scraps that I think I'll use again later and thats where all these came from. There a mix of papers from Heidi Swapp, American Crafts, and Basic Grey. I pulled out some old wood veneer from Studio Calico, the camera, and I cant remember where the Yay one came from, it was just in my stash. I pulled some old Maya Roads too! I love them!But I grabbed a chipboard ring that had a bunch of boy themed things on it from Maya Roads and used the boys one and added some blue chunky glittered letters from American crafts.

This layout is a bit basic but I love it and was happy with the way it turned out.

Now I also made a mini album for my kiddos. This is only the 1st one, still need to make 2 more, lol. I have 3 that are school aged and need one for each. But I made this to keep track of things threw the year.

It has a place for there 1st day of school, favorite teacher, little achievements and the last day of school too. So a beginning to end. I didnt embellish a ton on it right now, I thought as I go threw the year and add the photos, that I'll add more.

Well I hope you enjoyed my layout and my mini album. And I really hope that you will continue on to the other blogs and youtube channels and check out all the other layouts these amazing ladies have created!!

Also as a plus, I would like to add in a giveaway!! U.S only, Sorry!! Create a layout and  post a link in the comments below by the 15th and I will pick one random winner.
