Say good buy to the storage boxes your kid's school work is currently stored in, and hello to cheap ( free ) patterned backgrounds!!

A great way to preserve your child's school work is to use it as a background for your layouts. Take photo's of your child around the time the work was done ( really anytime in that semester counts ) then either cut the work and use it in kinda a collage manner or just adhere the whole piece to the card stock background. Layouts with several pieces of work overlapping especially look cute and help you preserve more papers at a time. But remember these pages are not acid free so either back your photos or use the archival spritz to rid the papers of there acid.
