Here is a fun apple mini book I made using photos of my son with his teacher on the first day of school. I added the pages for 5th & 6th grade so I can add photos later and I added a photo of the school.

Front Cover (I inked the apple using Tim Holtz distress inks):

First and Second grades:

Third and Fourth grades:

Fifth and Sixth grades(coming soon):

Thanks so much for playing along! Good luck!

Your mini album is adorable. My youngest grandchild will be starting preschool next year; an album like this would be a great gift to give her mom for all her school photos. Thanks for the inspiration!
