Peyton's First Day of Preschool & Creative Cuts & More Mini Album

Peyton started preschool last week. He was so excited for it to start! He is not an early riser and takes FOREVER to wake up. But he pops right out of bed for school! Can you believe I had to put a jacket on him? Yeah...it was a cold morning!
And here he is walking into the school.
We searched and searched for a dinosaur backpack but haven't been able to find one. Luckily he LOVES this backpack and was okay using it till we can find a dinosaur one.
He won't eat at home, but he eats the snacks at school. The first day consisted of grapes (which we took), Cheezits and apple juice. He had fun playing with Hunter and Emily. He is so funny. It takes a lot of pushing to get answers out of him. When I asked if he wanted to go back the next day he quickly nodded yes (remember...it takes alot to get him to talk about school).

I wanted to make something for his teachers, who are as sweet as can be. I decided to make a mini. Creative Cuts & More has this really cute mini I have been wanting to try so I figured it a perfect timing! I decided to get individual pieces instead of a set. I didn't want dividers, just pages. So I used the Scallop Wrap Cover, 2 album covers and 6 individual pages.
I used lots of piece from my stash as well as a kit from Citrus Tree Studio.
I used magnets to keep the cover one. See the little stars? I fussy cut those from a piece of patterned paper and adhered them to the magnets.I thought this little apple just perfect for the cover!
I tried to keep it really simple and non-bulky. I wanted the teachers to be able to slip 4x6 photos right in it!

Products used: Creative Cuts & More 6x6 Album Page, Creative Cuts & More 6x6 Album Cover, Creative Cuts & More 6x6 Scallop Wrap Cover, Basic Grey Magnetic Snaps, My Minds Eye Paper, Making Memories Paper, Bo Bunny Paper, Basic Grey Magnets, Fancy Pants Chipboard, American Crafts Paper and Thickers, Fiskars Border Punch, Unkown carstock scraps, buttons & ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by! Check back tomorrow, I am participating in a blog hop!
Oh, and word to the wise...disposable pull ups ARE NOT washable! haha! Yeah...I don't recommend trying it. Although I did learn they can hold A LOTof liquid! haha!
