Simple Stories: Thinking About College...

Happy Friday! Today I have a couple of projects to share using the absolutely fabulous, bright and fun Sn@p collection from Simple Stories. The girls are almost 3 -1/2 and over the past year they have been saying some hilarious things. I try to write everything down as they say it or it at least makes a Facebook status if it's appropriate. ;) One day I was working on something in my kitchen and it was a little too quiet for comfort upstairs. I went to check on the girls and they were each "resting" in their beds and one of them pipes up..."We're just thinking about college..." And, cue my surprised look! I about fell over laughing. It might just be me but I think I would like to attempt preschool before we even consider the heartache of sending them to college! ;)


Sn@p is certainly perfect for those doing Project Life but since that is not something I am doing, I wanted to use the collection to capture a perfectly ordinary moment in our lives but one that I will not soon forget. The photos were not taken in the moment but just ones I had snapped of them getting ready to head to grandma's house for an overnight stay by themselves. They look so grown-up to me with their too-big-for-their-little-bodies backpacks that I chose to highlight them with this particular funny saying.  The 3 x 4 cards have perfect prompts for beginning titles...


I always love to mix and match my alphabet stickers for titles and I love the variety in the Sn@p collection.


And I also love the new phrase stickers found sprinkled throughout the collection...


As always I like to create a quick and easy card when I have my supplies out.



Thanks for stopping by today! We're heading to my parent's house to help my nephew celebrate his 2nd birthday! And we still haven't made it to the pumpkin patch...we're hoping for next week sometime!

Enjoy your weekend!
