This might be the quickest page I've ever done - in terms of getting the photos from camera to scrapbook. Yesterday was my son's first day at college; he has to travel by bus and there is one bus a day that goes from the stop opposite our house direct to the college. At other times he has to change buses or walk part of the way. I knew that he wouldn't be agreeable to a 'First Day of College' photo-shoot so I sneaked a few pictures of him waiting at the bus stop, totally oblivious to me at the bedroom window.

I tend to use either letter or number paper on school pages, so I went for a number paper from Crate Paper DIY Shop. While pulling that, I spotted the background paper with the 'today' allover print and decided to stick with DIY Shop for two single colour patterned papers to complete the layout. I'm loving this collection (and loving that I'm using it). 

I used the September 1st sketch at Stuck Sketches for my page. I've recently discovered this blog, and like what I've seen so far. I may go back and use some of their August sketches too.
