Here's a layout where I used traditional school items but which talks about my thoughts on life and what my son has taught me.
Whenever I think of back-to-school, I think of my favorite place -- the library. (Yes, I was such a nerd.) And of course that means I just have to pull out my Library Card Stamp.
P.S. This is my son circa five years ago. I so miss him being this small.
Inspiration challenge: Scrap about life lessons, the stuff you've learned so far. The most important learning doesn't actually happen in the classroom. This is your life. So go ahead and scrap it.
