Hi there and HAPPY AUGUST!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and checking out this month’s edition of OLD NEW BORROWED COOL!! Where I’m from, the month of August means wrapping up summer and (already) the start of school! Seriously! We’ve been in full shopping mode for everything from shoes to supplies to clothes in full anticipation of the big day (August 7th, August 7th, August 7th!)! I’m in heaven! I adore school, school supplies and even the smell of crayons! Yes, I’m *that* girl! And if I’m telling the full truth, I’ll have to admit that my collection of school-related scrapbooking papers is utterly ridiculous! I can’t pass up a tablet or script paper even if I already have twenty in my stash.
But probably the biggest reason that I’m so pre-occupied with school is that my oldest is making the transition to high school. HIGH SCHOOL! I know many of you remember him when he was just a tiny boy, so I’m sure this shocks you just as much as me! The thing is that he’s still just in 8th grade. Our school district has moved 8th graders in the high school because of middle school overcrowding and so it’s just a very strange situation all around. What DO you call an 8th grader in high school?! So with all those thoughts running through my head I decided that I wanted to make him an 8th grade album – an album for those memories that aren’t a complete part of the freshman to senior part of high school, a smash album if you will where he can record his own memories and thoughts of what it was like his 8th grade year.
Visit the Scrapbook & Cards website to see the entire August Old, New, Borrowed, Cool post including more about the album including inside pages and products used.
You can also see all of the Old. New. Borrowed. Cool projects that I have created in the last two years on the website as well.
Have a fabulous August!
