Scrapbooking Club ~ Session 3 and Funny Love Quotes by Kids

Today was an exciting day for the students...Yvette and I started Session 3. We had 23 students from grades 3 - 5 attend. There were lots of students that had been to a previous session, but we had quite a few new children. Next week we should have 3 more attending since they were not able to this afternoon. Unfortunately, we had to put about 6 students on a waiting list. We are hoping to have one last session before the end of the school year just for them.

Today's project was a Valentine's Mini Album. We did the first half today and next week we will complete the project.
I purchased these mini albums at Michaels for 80% off a dollar. What a great deal! I bought about 21 packs which was all they had. Since we had more students than expected we gave each student 4 pages instead of all 5. It actually worked out better with the amount of time we had. (We are still meeting 2:30 - 3:30 once a week.)
Students picked their paper from various colors and patterns, then traced the hearts, cut them out, and glued to album. We used a single hole punch for the ring.
Next Wednesday we plan on cutting out images on the Cricut, creating the frames for the pictures that the students bring, and adding lots of embellishments.

I can't wait to see the end results. Be sure to come back next week to see the final product! I know you will not be disappointed.

Funny Love Quotes by Kids:
  • Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other. 
  • Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs. 
  • Love is when someone hurts you. And you get so mad but you don't yell at them because you know it would hurt their feelings. 
  • Love is what makes you smile when you're tired.
  • Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.
  • You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget, and it's good for them to get reminded.

Stay Creative,
Georgiana

  8. Where does Mrs. Carson get all of these ideas!?!
    They are so creative.... I guess that is why she is such a good writer. She is my favorite teacher so far. Mrs. Carson made my 5th grade year so memorable. Perhaps she is the most understanding, ambitious, and imaginitave teacher in the world. I am thankful for her not giving up on me. She helped me do what I thought was to challenging. Thanks to her I am prepared for middle school.

    My heart is full of endless grattitiude.....
    I guess the million dollar question is "Do I make you proud?"
