Is it Flag Day Yet?

Family legend says my Mother hung the flag on the first day of school.  I don't believe she was celebrating the first day of school as a national holiday, I think it just fell on flag day and my Mother was teased about it. Maybe having 11 children go back to school was a national holiday to her!  It is a happy day and a sad one at the same time.  I cut the scalloped rectangle with Cricut CTMH Artiste.
Today I am sharing my back to school page this year and entering into Bitten By the Bug's School Bus Challenge.
I used Locker Talk for the bus and A Child's Year for the Mother and Child and welded them in CCR.  Paper and title are DCWV and number stickers are Basic Grey.

  4. Great layout. Great way to capture this bittersweet moment. Thanks for joining BBTB2.

  5. I believe I would declare it a national holiday if I had 11 children to send off to school!!!! With medicinal and celebratory beverages! It's crazy enough with only three kids! Absolutely love your layout-perfect for that back to school pic :) Thanks for playing along with us at BBTB2 this week.

  6. Oh I love your layout!! The silhouette of the bus and mother and child look amazing on this layout!! Bless your mother for raising 11 kids, I have raise 6 and know how much work was involved so I can imagine how much work and love your mother had! I can also imagine that it was a holiday for your mother when school started back up! lol Thanks for joining us at BBTB2;-)
