Teacher Life: School Spirit

Hello there, Scrappers! Today I am going to show you how truly dorky I can be. I was a high school journalism teacher for six (VERY LONG) years. During that time, I worked at three different schools (#militarywifelife). My absolute favorite school was East Bay High School in Gibsonton, Florida. The kids had amazing school spirit, and I loved being part of it. So, for Spirit Week 2009, I decided to play along.

For this layout, I used the Chalk It Up Paper Pack (retiring tomorrow!) to give the pages a real old school, academic feel. On the left page, I used some stamping accents from the Geek Is Chic stamp set to accent my true adorkability.

I also used the Chalk It Up chipboard complements, because I had some left.

For the right page, I wanted to highlight one picture, which was of me dressed for the Homecoming Dance, so I made it a full 4x6, instead of the 3.5x5.

To accent this page, I added this fun star border cut from Artbooking using the Free to Be Me (retired) paper pack. You'll also notice that all of the photos have been stamped with the coordinating day of the week. I used White Daisy pigment ink to create this look.

I am entering this layout in this week's Heart 2 Heart Challenge: Working 9 to 5.
