Sharing school memories …

Are there any memories more vivid than those we have from our days spent in school? It’s where many of us made life-long friends, decided on a career path or met our spouse. Not all memories I have of school are good ones. I still remember my 6th grade teacher – Miss Pomeroy – who would whack her pointer stick on my desk when she’d catch me biting my nails (by-the-way, I don’t do that anymore).

I came across my daughter’s year books recently while cleaning and had a sit-down to take a look through them. She was involved in lot activities and had a slew of nice friends. It made me wish I had discovered scrapbooking earlier, while the kids were in grade school. I could have put together cute little mini books for the grandparents rather than just send an envelope full of photos.

That’s what I had in mind while creating this little mini book for the back-to-school season. It’s small in size but big in personality with plenty of tags and nooks and crannies to hold a good amount of photos and journaling. The Graphic 45 ABC Primer collection of papers that were released recently were just the perfect fit for this adorable school-themed mini.

Check my calendar often and watch for locations, dates and times for this class and others – I’ll be listing them soon!

    If you could have had Mrs. Henson, you would have loved 5th grade at least! lol I had a “Miss Pomeroy” too – Mrs. Martin. Her specialties included yelling loudly and whacking us hard in the middle of the back. The current mayor of Livonia (Jack Kirksey) paddled me a number of times when I was in elementary school. I love your little book; I’ll bet it was fun to create!

    Re: Miss Pomeroy. Cannot believe we went to the same elementary school. Where did you live. I lived on bramell and my name then was Mikki St. Arno. Did we actually know each other in a former life?// What a hoot!!

    I saw your miniABC Primer TP book at Scrapbook Peddler, but was unable to take the cllass. Have you ever considered doing youtube videios teaching an album. I’ve watched some & they are amazing when done well. I dont know anything about how you do it, but it seems you would be a natural for them. Just a thought…
    PS If you ever teach the ABC Primer again, I would love to know & sign up.

      Hi Jan, sorry you weren’t able to make that particular class. I do have those kits available if you are interested. They come with complete instructions, along with photos, and I’m always available via email for questions. Let me know if you’d like one.

      Thanks again!
