Genuine Star Student

Hello once again today :) This layout I made today for The Memory Nest weekly sketch challenge.
 This is the layout I created :) Pictures of Zachary while he was writing. Great to see him doing so well so early in life, he just started Kindergarten just a couple of months ago. They have to know so much now versus when we were in school. We are so proud of Zachary and all our grandkids to see them developing like this.
This is the sketch for this past week's challenge over at The Memory Nest:
Only with 2 pictures to use for the layout I moved the journaling up and used a journaling card for the middle picture.  
 I used my current counterfeit kit Just Chillin' for my layout :) Adding in the school related embellishments with the circles I punched out. I was inspired to use some of the puffy stickers too so this goes with Whimsical Musings: Challenge #220 - puffy stickers
 My journaling
My title block. This was a fast one to put together with a great sketch and lots of scraps left from my counterfeit kit it took no time to put this together :) Probably the longest time was choosing the pictures to use.


  1. Kudos on using up the bits of your kit! You must be so proud of him :)

  2. Great layout, Tina! Love your mix of papers with those cute photos. Way to go making the sketch work with your photos. Thanks so much for joining us at The Memory Nest.

  3. I love those cute moments and he will be well prepared in school! Nice page! Thanks for joining in at THE MEMORY NEST!

  4. A great layout Tina and a great subject as well! I know I can't believe what all the kids need to know now in Kindergarten, it's wild! It's more like First Grade work in Kindergarten, it blows my mind. Sometimes I feel like we are taking their childhood away and making them more grown up than they need to be so much faster now. Sigh Hugs, Brenda

  5. A really lovely moment to scrap and there's something about photos from behind that I find really appealing. Thanks for using the sketch from The Memory Nest.

  6. Such a lovely layout capturing him doing some writing... when he gets older and looks back at this, he is going to be in awe...such a lovely sketch and I love that background paper!
