About Me

My photo
I am Sarah, a stay at home mom of two wonderful, little boys. In my life before kids I was a fifth grade teacher. I now work with first year teachers, which I love. Creating is one of the ways I stay sane. I become very cranky if I have not stamped or scrapped in a while. Join me on this creative journey.

Project Life Week 4

Week four in Project Life and I am still going strong. I have added a few extra pages to add photos and I also added one page protector to each month so I can put extra stuff from the month. It feels a bit like the portfolio I had to make when I taught with the artifacts you had to have to document your teaching. This is the right side of the album, I added a sleeve with 6 4x6 slots for photos This is the left side with another 6 added pictures

Elias loves his teacher Miss Susan. John had a furlough day so he was able to come with me to pick him up. Elias flew out the door into his arms
Reid got a magic science kit for his birthday ....in October. He has been begging to do some of the experiments but of course John and I had a million excuses not to do it. Finally we relented and I have to say it was pretty cool. And not that messy.
The boys were BORED. So not a fan of that word. They finally made a fort under the train table. I would like to say that it was arguement free but I would be lying. They both retreated to different corners of the fort and played their video games.
Snow day! This is the first time in a long time that the snow was heavy enough to build a snowman and to have a snowball fight.
Your so vain, betcha think this song is about you......Yup I am being a bit vain. I Have always wanted to have my teeth whitened so for my birthday John set it up with the dentist to get it done.
Elias and I went to the parent/child dance at his school. We had to convince Elias to wear "fancy" clothes. He had a great time dancing and playing with his friends.
Reid was absent the day his Sunday School class made a Shabbat box. He decided to make his own. He found a shoebox, decorated it and filled it with all things Shabbat. He is really looking forward to Friday night so we can use it.

How did you print four pictures in one 4X6 space? I know - I am a rookie, but I don't get it, and I love it! Another great week in the life of the Whites - ahhh the power of scrapbooking;)

Rhonda, I printed wallet sizes of each of the photos and attached them to a 4x6 piece of cardstock. When you print at Ritz you have an option of 1 4x6 with 2 wallets attached.

ooh!! Very nice. I loved that extra sheet of photos. I need to do that too. You can also use an utility called Photosheet. It creates a 4x6 photograph with any kind of grid. Here is a link. Love this tool,
