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.

  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;-)
