First to last year

How fabulous is pinterest for inspiration!

Yesterday I was looking around on there (as you do) when I came across a photo of a school leaver holding his first year photo outside his school - so I managed to convince the children to put on their old schools uniforms (both of mine left their current schools two weeks ago and are both moving on up to new schools in September - so it was now or never!) and surprisingly they did (think they are getting used to their Moms mad photo shoot ideas now!) and off we set back to their old schools for the photo shoots.

Here is my eldest who is going up to Senior school:

and my youngest who is going up to Junior school:


I feel a scrapbook layout coming on......

A big hello to mdijk - thanks for following me :)

I bet you are so proud. Now a suggestion from someone who has just seen her eldest of three boys finish his GCSE's (fingers crossed at this time!!) get/stock a very large freezer (if you haven't got one already) because it is going to get like feeding a plaque of locusts as they grow over the next few years!!! Seriously, it is good to see you are capturing these special moments as they pass so quickly. Hugs, Buttons x

What a great idea. Both boys look so different. Looking forward to seeing your layouts.

Popped over to see if you had posted any photos of your crop with Julia but alas not as yet. Anyway was pleased to see the school photos, what a great idea, and what super boys too. We did something similar, on my son's first day at Primary school we'd taken a photo of him and me in the playground and on his last day we took the same photo, in the same place, in the same pose, my had he grown! Oh and yes I scrapped the two photos. BJ

Oh silly me got well into blog surfing as our internet connection was up for a change. I had popped over here from Morti's page so the crop reference was really for her - sorry. BJ

What a neat idea - glad they were willing to play along and yep can see a page idea looming over the horizon! :)
