Photo Strips

To me scrapbooking is all about the photos.  It is a great way to preserve a special memory and document life.  This week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge was to share a project that incorporates a photo...or my my case many photos.  

Like most moms, I document the 1st day of school heavily.  Pictures getting ready for school, pictures on the front porch, pictures in the car on the way to school and of course pictures at school.  How fun will it be to look back on those first day of school photos and see how my children have grown each and every year?  I just finished creating this fun "Back to School" layout using CTMH's Cruisin' paper pack for my June Scrappy Creations class.  I love the photo strip look and love that I can incorporate all of my photos in the fun, yet not too busy layout.  I think it helps document the day without extensive journaling.     
Don't you just love the fun star embellishments?   The letters from the B&T paper are great to use for titles too.  
Close up of the photo strips.  So fun to see my daughter's different facial expressions.  

I just love this layout and think I will be trying to incorporate more photo strips into my layouts in the near future.
