Snowflakes and Students

steep n deep

Post #2 of my 12 posts of Christmas.

One of the reasons I’ve been so busy lately, is that I’m now attending school as an aide to my son Richard, who has Asperger’s syndrome. He’s a great kid, although his Asperger’s makes it difficult for him to keep up with the rigors of school life, and traditional school hasn’t been successful for us. I love the school he attends now, with a project-based curriculum. I’m blessed to be able to spend so much time with my son and make a difference in his education.

Field trips are common at City School, and it’s always fun to be out and about with the kids. I created this scrapbook layout about the science class trip to Deep Creek, to study geology.

While this layout isn’t about Christmas, the snowflake theme would be perfect for a snowy holiday page. I used Avonlea paper pack, plus Desert Sand, Ruby and Cocoa cardstock.

Your color combos always blow me away! Thanks for sharing. I have been waiting to use my luscious Ruby cardstock with a paper pack other than Scholastic.

Great layout! I love the snowflake background - I may have to "lift" this for a winter layout. Did you use one of the CTMH sketches or is this one you created yourself?

I love the snowflakes stamped in the corner. So pretty.

While you are tripling your posts for this month ("Halleluia!"), would you think about doing more of these "different color combo's than just what comes in the pack" projects? I would NEVER have thought to use Ruby with Avonlea, but this is STUNNING!!!
