Throwback Thursday | Last Day of School

Throwback Thursdays are celebrated on Go Crafty with a scrapbook page made by Maddie back in junior high or high school. There is a large chance that they will all be very embarrassing (in both layout and content).

Wow, so apparently mangling up some sticker paper with scissors and cutting out some very small wonky letters passes for a page title, or at least I thought it did.

These pages are from my last day of junior high, the last day of 8th grade specifically. I know, right? What 12 year old girl scrapbooks? What can I say, I guess I couldn’t help myself.

So a Ziggy sticker, and 8.5×11″ paper that looks like a locker… That’s cool right? And shiny stickers of school supplies; who knew that was even a thing. Why on earth did I use paper that had cursive letters and dotted lines on it. I mean, c’mon, this wasn’t elementary school, I knew how to do cursive.

But apparently I still didn’t know how to journal ;-).

Clearly my photography skills were pretty awesome here; I mean, one photo actually has a big piece of my finger in it, and two others are completely discolored (and yet, I’ve still included them.)

A Penguin Easel

My mom is a middle school teacher, and because of that (and the fact that I own a Cricut?), I’m always getting pulled in to help with her school projects.

Luckily, this was about the easiest project in the whole world; it just needed an extra set of hands.

Mom found this easel at a garage sale for a steal. One side holds a giant notepad, but the other side was perfect for holding her dry erase board.

Despite being super functional, it wasn’t very pretty (because that’s obviously what counts with school supplies. Ha). We were trying to figure out how we could spruce it up a bit, when mom remembered that she had picked up some penguin duct tape from the grocery store. She had all ready used it for one project, but had nothing else planned for the rest of the roll which worked for me!

We covered the sides and tray with a few long pieces of tape. I ended the bottom of the feet with two pieces of yellow duct tape because 1) mom had yellow tape and I wanted to use it and 2) that whole ‘dipped’ and painter feet on furniture look is all the Pinterest rage right now and I thought it’d be funny to give a little nod in that direction.

Throwback Thursday | Spaghetti Dinner

Throwback Thursdays are celebrated on Go Crafty with a scrapbook page made by Maddie back in junior high or high school. There is a large chance that they will all be very embarrassing (in both layout and content).

Okay wow, so this is from eight grade. I realize that there was no reason for me to tell you that, I’m sure the decorative Lisa Frank tape around all sides of the page totally gave it away.

Yeah, it doesn’t get a whole lot worse than this: said Lisa Frank tape, a piece of origami paper randomly placed in the middle of the page, and a title made with my label maker.

(Again, I was a weird kid. What kind of junior high schooler asks for a label maker for Christmas? Well, blame my grandma; she bought it for me!) But seriously, get a look at this title.

Let’s be honest, I’m just impressed that I spelled Spaghetti correctly.

The top photo is so dark that you can barely even see what’s going on.

Oh well, that girl power sticker (that doesn’t remotely match) on the bottom clearly makes up for this lackluster page! Nothing like an arbitrarily placed sticker to pull this sucker together ;-).
