090619 Whimsical Musings #328

Be inspired by back to school

First I feel compelled to express my heartfelt gratitude that my favorite inspiration site, Whimsical Musings, has returned from summer vacation! Just in time for me to scrap my grand boys return to school, plus my Counterfeit Kit Challenge September "Boys Rule" kit had tons of back to school goodies in it.

My background & the paper airplane cut-out is one of my CKC forgeries.

I fussy-cut one of my kit cards to create my title along with foam letters.

The little green caped super hero came from the same card as the title sentiment.

There's another super hero embellishment from that same card!

A forged card revamped for the sentiment.
Lisa has some great ideas that expand the prompt:

Let's have a think about some other ways you could take this prompt:
  • you could take a literal approach for the start of the school year for yourself, your children or any child whose story you're recording
  • you could recall the memories around the preparations for school - how about your love for school stationery supplies?
  • what about scrapbooking supplies that feature school motifs 
  • perhaps you've gone back to further education later in life - this might be the time to record that story
  • I'm also thinking about any type of learning - a new skill, a class, something just for fun - could also be included here
  • there's even the idea that you could go back to a scrapbook class that you've left unfinished and continue with the lessons, making a page with your new design/technique skills
I feel like getting back to Whimsical Musings and blogging on a more regular schedule is some sort of "back to school" so this feels so appropriate for us this week. I hope you feel this is a good way to kickstart our reboot and will join in!
I just love that it took 24 hours from seeing the current Whimsical Musings #328 prompt to craft a page that I love. Now it's your turn!

Thanks for stopping by!
