Ain't School Cool?

My kids have been back in full swing for three weeks now;  hard to believe that the first six weeks is half-way over...whew!  They're all the "big man (or girl) on campus" this year...a Senior, 8th-grader and 4th-grader.  Big.  One afternoon after picking Syd up, she comments on a girl walking along the sidewalk..."look at that cute little 1st grader"  She talks so big, as though she isn't cute or little herself anymore :)
Okay, ya'll know that I got some fabulous loot from Your Scrapbook Stash last week!  I finished my first project with the Fancy Pants' OFF TO SCHOOL line today.  It went together pretty quickly and was a lot of fun to make.  In my stash, was an acrylic sheet that has the alphabet in brown flocking from top to bottom.  I thought "how cool to use this in between pages...like the acrylic albums of old."  So, I went to cutting!  I actually machine stitched the "School is Cool" sticker on the front
Then, I grabbed a Maya Road scalloped chipboard album (from my stash) and cut the sheets (with an X-Acto knife) into different lengths to create a staggered look
Here are the following pages for you to enjoy
