Hello all! I`m super excited to be hosting this challenge! I love back to school ... a time of new beginnings, full of excitement and hope :)

For this challenge, I want you to take a moment to reflect on how much can change in a year. Scrap a photo of your child going back to school this year, and scrap a photo of your child going back to school last year.

Here are the rules (there aren`t a lot!)

1. You can scrap two layouts (one for each photo) or one layout with two photos, that`s up to you!

2. If your kids aren`t going back to school, you can scrap a photo of your child or another loved one now and a year ago. Even adults change a lot in a year!

3. Anyone can participate. If possible, please use mostly products from our wonderful designers here at theStudio. We have some awesome goodies (currently at 50% off) with a Back to School (https://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=404) theme.

4. Layouts must be posted by 25th August, 2012. You can pop them in our special Back To School Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/g1407-back-2-school.html), and here in this thread.

One winner will receive a coupon for a free kit from my store!

I can`t wait to see your layouts!

Want to hear something funny Danielle? I moved over a year ago and I still haven't unpacked my box with my disks! My office space is the corner of a closet here - much smaller than it was in the old place - so I'm having issues finding places to put things.

Only had one year to work with as my son never went to pre-school.

This was so much fun! I found photos I forgot I had. I love the one where little sister, Jameson, is watching big brother, Cohen meet his kindergarten teacher, and then there's Jameson, 3 years later meeting the same teacher. Out of 10 kindergarten classes, we are so glad she also got Miss Trushca.

Here is mine for my daughter - one was taken at the beginning of Kindergarten, Sept 2011 and the other was taken in May 2012,at the end of the school year... until I put these two pictures together, I never noticed the difference! Thank you Jewel for an awesome challenge!

How lovely! I wanted both my boys to have the same kindergarten teach but it wasn't meant to be. Kindergarten teachers can be so special! (or awful, as I found out LOL)

Wow she really changed a LOT! It's funny how we sometimes don't notice it in the moment but when we look back it really hits!
