Early Preschool Album Wrap-Up

Howdy Weekend!

Hope yours is going well.  We are having "extreme heat warnings" here.  Woohoo.

OK, here's my quick wrap up of my son's 1st year of preschool album I've been sharing.  In case you haven't been keeping up with this (WHAT?  You mean you don't read every*single*little thing I write?!!  LOL.) I've been sharing the album I created for my son's 1st year of preschool 2 years ago.  The album is by far no scrapbooking masterpiece but it's cohesive, it has a general theme, and it's appropriate for the subject matter.  Now I just have to make his 2nd year of preschool album.  And his Kindergarten album.  And The Girl's 1st year of preschool album.  LOL. 



I like my little Cricut die cut of bugs in a jar.  It's hard to tell but the bugs are made out of iridescent-looking alcohol inked paper.



They had the Phoenix Zoo come out this month and bring some interesting animals with them for the kids to see.  This was my favorite one...a hedgehog.  I will SOMEDAY have a hedgehog of my very own!!!

I also included a few specialty pages at the back of the scrapbook focusing on specific things.  This particular one shows my son's handwriting progress from the beginning to the end of the year. 

That alphabet border was THE REASON I purchased the Cricut Graphically Speaking cartridge!  Isn't it awesome?  This IS a 12x12 page.  (A bitch to extract from the paper but awesome nonetheless!) 

Tomorrow we go to meet The Boy's 1st grade teacher.  I'm so excited.  He starts back to school this coming Thursday.  He's so looking forward to it. 

Keep cool!
