Okay, if you're like me with a child that's all grown up now but you still have all his/her old school know the ones that you have left over from being taken twice a year, every year and no matter how they turn out you end up buying them anyway LOL. Well I've got plenty left over after sending to family and friends.

I've been working on a 6 x 12 landscape album just for these photos and since I already have all the school photos I want to keep in frames or my own albums, this album will go to my daughter. I'm also adding an educational quote on each page and using any old school memorabilia from each year that I still have.

It's a great way to have all those school portraits together in one place and finally all scrapped.

I would love to hear how you're planning to scrap your kids, nieces or nephew school photos. You can always post and share your layouts in the SOC gallery. If you need some inspiration, check out the great back-to-school layouts in the Seasonal section of our current issue starting on page 35.

Remember with school already back in session "Picture Day" is coming very soon!


  1. Cute pages. I love this size page. This will make a nice gift!

  2. The layouts are adorable! Just going through her pictures and seeing how much she has grown up would just get me all teared up.

  3. Really cute LOs, I need to do something like that for my adult son pictures.

  4. I love this idea, and how nice to give it to your beautiful daughter. Great choice as well using the 6x12 layout!

  5. Your layouts are gorgeous. (And so is your daughter).

    Just wanted to pop by to thank you for visiting my blog. Appreciated!

  6. That first page photo is a "mini-me" of you! I had to read your post to realize it wasn't you! Loving the landscape page idea -- perfect for these kinds of photos.

  7. Tena, these pages are wonderful. I'm working on school layouts now and just might have to scraplift.
