Project Life | End of the School Year

Last day of school has come and gone. It's summer! Hooray!! Then, you remember that massive pile of school art/worksheets piled up in the corner of the kitchen. Ugh. Time to tackle that now and figure out what to keep and include in Project Life. Here is how I took on that very task.

Let's start with the before. 
I mean... look at all that awesome work and art! How can I part with any of it?! Well, I did. I take photos of that large paintings. This way I can include them in Project life by printing out as a 4x6 or 3x4 if I choose to.
Then I was cut-throat with what I kept and what I tossed. I used a Becky Higgins 12x12 envelope to hold the real treasures that we just can't part with. Since I was at the end of my first album for 2014 I knew that I had just enough space to hold this envelope, too. Nice how the timing worked out. 

So, here is the layout that I did for the last day of school and included all of her artwork in and class photos.


And this is what it all looks like together in the album.

And that's a wrap for volume 1 of 2014's Project Life! It is clearly time to move on to a fresh album.
Now, can we discuss this problem of her growing so quickly in 9 short months??
Do you have any organization tips for end of the school year in your house? How do you like to document it in Project Life? Let me know in the comments.
