Core curriculum...

Happy Tuesday! What do you have going on today? Taylor is having a play date so we are anxiously awaiting her friend's arrival. Nine more days until school starts!

In scrappy news, Noel Mignon has asked me to be her guest designer this month! I was in AWE when I opened the new Core Curriculum kit, it's sooo packed full of goodies and is perfect for any type of school pages. Each Tuesday this month, you will see a new post by me with some creations done with this kit HERE.

Today I made a page about my daughter doing homework. She really struggles with it, and it's not her favorite thing to do after a long day at school. But I'm so proud of her for getting through each and every night last year. Her having Attention Deficit Disorder really controls her ability to focus, so it has been quite a struggle. She had 4 subjects of homework, and it usually took her 2 hours to complete it all. That's a lot for 3rd grade if you ask me!

I meant to tuck her report card into the pocket before I took the pic of my page. She got an O (for outstanding) in the homework department! A positive note to remember.

I love the blue paper with the lines on it. Reminds me of when I was a teacher, and I used to use those sentence strips. They are perfect for journaling!

Supplies:
Red cardstock
Green alpha patterned paper: Welcome to Room 10! by Imaginisce
Report card paper: Beef Boullion Alphabet Soup by Jillibean Soup
Blue lined paper: Ground Round Alphabet Soup by Jillibean Soup

Pencil: cut from Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend paper
Ribbon: Jillibean Soup

A+ Brad: A+ Epoxy Brads by Imaginisce
Bicycle transparency: Hambly

Tickets, star and die cuts behind photo and report card: Attic Treasures by Melissa Frances
