Over this past summer, I went back to school (this month’s theme at Simple Scrapper) for the first time in many years. I took an accelerated EMT course at my local community college. It was by far the most difficult course I have ever taken, exceeding even the tortuous economics class I took in MBA school. I put aside most other things in my life (including scrapbooking, photography, and riding) to complete the course. When I was not in class, I was studying. Luckily, my husband took over many of the household duties so that I could concentrate on my studies.
Of course, I had to make my first layout for Simple Scrapper this month about this class. I did manage to snap a few photos with my iPhone, so I used these to document my classroom journey. This sketch/template from this month’s collection was perfect for using the photos I took during class.
Back to school for my family means just sitting down at our dining room table! Homeschooling has been a part of our life for the past eight years. As a homeschool teacher, I rely heavily on our local library for books to supplement our curriculum. So trips to the library are part of our school routine. Just recently we were able to visit the brand new library that just opened up in the town near us. We were all excited to see the new building and check out some books. I snapped a quick photo of my kids in front of the library that day and enlarged it to use on a sketch/template from this month’s collection.
