This week has quite a few end of year (school year) activities going on, so I let it all take over a full two page spread on its own.
I had a nephew graduating so I put his announcement in the center, just like my neice's on last week's layout. Here's the two page spread with his announcement facing front:
And here it is with the announcement turned over:
There was a lot of purple in the pictures so I went with purple for the background pieces and a filler card. Here on the left side we have:
-the title card
-the week in review
-pics from my first and second born's bilingual assembly at school. It's a governor thing.
-a Facebook post about my two oldest arguing in Spanish and me not understanding them
-a little note to mention that baseball playoffs are STILL going.
On the right we remember:
- O's last day of preschool -One picture shows that she broke down at the last minute, sad for preschool to be over. I was shocked because she's been excited about starting kindergarten all year long.
- A note my middle daughter wrote and attached to her bedroom door. It says to not come in because she's naked. But it says it in her kindergarten way with Spanish phonics. I thought it was so funny so I folded it up and tucked it into the pocket. Then I put a title from one of the branding strips from the patterned paper on the pocket to pretty it up a bit. It says "Here and Now" and I thought that was appropriate. I tend to save the branding strips from the papers as they have some fun word combos and such.
On this spread there are two pockets (one on each side) where I just slipped in a piece of patterned paper. I might go back later and add more to those to embellish them a bit, but for now I wasn't fretting over just letting the design show and fill in those two spaces.
