School Days book

So with Garrick starting school I wanted a way to document things along the way, to see how he changes through the years. I had seen something like this, tweeked it to make it a "Danielle Version," so here is the result. I made one for a couple of Garrick's friends that are also starting kindergarten, but a simpler version, without the paper. Although the paper was easy to add, it was time consuming. And since that is something I don't have much of, they can be creative on their own if they wish. I have it all saved on my computer, so anyone that's interested, let me know, and I could print you off a copy and send to you snail mail. Here goes;
Front cover


Finish of the 20__ with the year they are in that grade, so Garrick's will be 2008.




All these pages are the same for each grade. So it will be fun to see how it changes from year to year. Especially his signature!





Here are a few of the other grades, but the book includes K-12.





I have some corner punches that I bought from Michael's on sale with a coupon that I used. The printed paper I just cut enough off the edges (about 1/4" on each side I think) so that it would fit. Or you could still trim the printed paper, and glue it to the decorative paper. Then I put it in page protectors. For those couple that I did for friends, you could just cut off the edge where I hole punched it, and still be able to put it on decorative paper later if you want. Let your imagination run wild! Have fun! Now, I'm going to go try to not get emotional as I am about to send Garrick off to school this week. Wish me luck!

Wow, that's a really neat idea! I have one from when I started school and it was pretty funny to see all of the changes. We had to buy ours though because we aren't creative like you!! LoL
