Packed 2 Go Back

...Back to School that is. My middle son is not fond of having his picture taken, so to document this event, I had to be creative. Thus, it's a back to school layout featuring a photo of the packed car! The initial "A" and "Roll Tide" on the banner hint at his school...the University of Alabama. The guitar in the back of the van tells a little bit about the boy himself.


I began this layout with bits and pieces of October's Hall Pass kit from Scraptastic, adding bits and pieces from prior months' kits as well. I love finding uses for all those little leftovers: a tab here, a sticker there. Paper scraps fashioned into a banner finish the page off nicely.



 Packed 2 Go and off we went...to deliver Chris to his second year. Last I heard, he had 3 As and 2 A+s! WTG Chris!

A really great perspective w/o the camera shy subject! I hope he is doing better and is celebrating all the "wins" responsibly.
