2 Sharpen 48 Pencils

School started less than a month ago and after all the sharpening I had to do, I figured I might as well get a few decent pictures of the pencils to scrap!  The perfect opportunity presented itself in WIP's October's add-on kit. Thus documented is the tale of me sharpening 48 pencils, lol.  They aren't all pictured of course, after all, her little hands couldn't hold all 48 of them together. Yes, I did have her try :)


I printed the journaling on one of the tags and used the other for the title.
Also, my first guest designing post for Jillibean Soup is going up today. It's very exciting of course, so please stop by Jillibean's blog to check it out.

Awesome picture and gorgeous LO! Was it true- does a 2nd grader actually use 48 sharpened pencils?

Love the title treatment and envelope! How do you take so much "stuff" and make it look so great! I would never think of this combo.

This is so cool. I like that you're able to find an activity so mundane, take a great photo and turn it into a cool layout.

Cute. I should really take photos of the art supplies my hubby carries home in his pockets after a day at school --- art gum erasers, hall passes, pencils, sharpeners. It's always a giggle when I package them all up in his lunchbox for their return to school.
