"3rd Grade School Memories" layout

Happy Tuesday dear friends. I hope that your week is off to a great start and that you are finding time to be creative. The following layout was inspired by this sketch from the Stuck?! blog

For this page, I decided to document some "last of day of school" photos of my son. This was for his last day of 3rd grad and it's long overdue (he's in 7th grade now). I loved how the sketch provided for more than one photo and I actually "snuck" in a fourth one which represented the mass of kids happy to be leaving school for their summer vacation. I purposely blurred some of the photos in order to keep the identity of the children private. 

I used another homemade kit for this layout. It was actually inspired by the latest kit inspiration from the Counterfeit kit challenge blog. I recently came across them and love the kit inspiration that I decided to play along. I'm hoping to create a video of my kit sometime soon. Make sure to check out my YouTube channel on the right side of this blog for more information.

This layout has increased in meaning for me over the last week after hearing of my son's teacher (in this photo) that recently passed away due to cancer. I am grateful for her and her devotion to her students over the years, my son being one of them. It's amazing how much value we put in our photos, especially when those in it are gone. I am now contemplating of creating a better system of printing my photos so that I don't ever lose any of my precious images. Do you have any suggestions?
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a great day.

Till next time,
Grace
