It's School Week at TPV!

Welcome to week 35 at The Paper Variety!
We're nearing the end of May and students and school staff are anticipating the last day of class as summer vacation is right around the corner. Suzanne and I both work in education, and I can honestly say, we are counting those days by the hours and minutes! :)

Perhaps you plan to create a thank you card/gift for your child's teacher... or you'll be taking photos of your child's graduation (or you have photos of your own!)... you might be a teacher and want to make some cute little gifts for your students. Or maybe (if you're like me) you have years of school portraits just waiting to be scrapbooked.

We'd love to see your school themed projects!


TPV is sponsoring this challenge and will award this Crate Paper "School Spirit" kit to one lucky randomly chosen winner! :)

Need a little push to get scrappy?
Check out these A+ school theme projects from our TPV DT! :)

A memory when my daughter was in Pre-Kinder. Oh my, times flies!!! I used DCWV Pattern Papers.

I made a mini album for my daughter, I'll fill this album with her photos from Kindergarten so she can have something to remember when she grow up :)

This challenge is gave me the push I needed to scrap this picture of my dad when he was in first grade.

It seems like yesterday, the first day going to school to pickup your uniforms and working books. Finally, I scrapped our school memories. I used a sketch from Sassafras manufacturer's blog.

Ready for school! My brother and sister in 1966 with all their school supplies. I used a sketch from October Afternoon and almost all supplies are from OA as well!

For my school theme project, I decided to make some cute little gift card holders for teachers! What teacher wouldn't love getting one of these, right? ;)

I decided to make a mini album (my first ever!) for my son's grade school photos. I used Crate Paper's School Spirit collection, the TPV prize this week. You can view the inside pages on my blog. :)

Now it's your turn!
Get out all your "school supplies" - paper, scissors and glue - and link up your school themed paper project below.
Link before Sunday evening for a chance to be featured in our Spotlight. Link before Tuesday noon for your chance at the Crate Paper prize! :)
