November scrapbook layouts for Simple Scrapper

Hello! The school year is underway, and I am starting to get busy. We just had mid-trimester conferences, and the papers in my English classes are coming in quicker. Still, I managed to edit and print some photos in expectation of future scrapbooking, and I scrapbooked some pages for Simple Scrapper. Here's the first:

This page came about for me after a family visit to the zoo I noticed my son taking pictures of Pokemon in the pens, so I asked him to share them with me. When I saw this sketch from Simple Scrapper, I knew I wanted to use it to tell the story of our Como Zoo visit where were saw animals and Pokemon.

This side of the layout I filled with photos of us, the animals, and my son's Pokemon photos.

The right side I selected my favorite family photos to put alongside the title and journaling.

Next was a page about my son and his newfound interest in school clubs. He found four he was interested in and narrowed it to two, choosing one because some of his friends were taking it. That gave me an avenue into the story about his growth. Making friends has been a challenge because he is on the spectrum, so I wanted to celebrate the casual acknowledgment of his social circle.

It's been a while since I've subscribed to a kit. Recently I've subscribed to Ali Edwards' story kit, and I used some of the cards and embellishments on this page. How perfect are those wooden phrases?

I used a lot of yellow since this was such a happy story.

Thank you for visiting today! I've enjoyed finding time to get my daily scrap on. Keep an eye on Simple Scrapper this month. We're starting another Photo Crush to help organize your photo stash.
