Project Life {first grade}

I did it! I finally started a project life album. I'm using the binder from Simple Stories because it is a smaller album (6" x 8"). If you read my blog, you know I scrapbook 8.5" x 11" layouts most often, so it makes sense that I wanted something smaller for this project, too.

I'm so excited, too, because my friend Renee is doing hers along with me. So far we've had one little crop together to work on our books. Sara Z. from ScrapFIT bought the same binder, too, and is virtually joining us from her neck of the woods. These things are always more fun with friends.

This first page is a tab for fall as well as the cover page. I didn't want to decorate the outside of the binder, but I did want to still have some kind of cover to it.

This first page also has a pocket on it for Nate's class announcement. I folded it up and used washi tape to hold it in the pocket. 

The first graders were invited to the school the week before classes started to find their cubbies and also choose their desks. Nate realized that his friend from Kindergarten was in the cubbie next to him. It was the highlight of the day.

So that's it for now — I'm just so glad to have it started and to have friends working along with me. This is going to be a great project! Thanks for stopping to see my new adventure!
