Flat Stanley

Ahhhhh the great 2nd grade project....Flat Stanley!  Flat Stanley is a little guy that each 2nd grader draws and colors, who, since he is flat can slip into an envelope and travel all over the world.  As he travels he sends post cards and photos to the child's class and the children get to learn about different places all over the world and learn through the adventures he has.  This year is Jenna's turn, and her Flat Stanley has begun his 6 month tour.  First he went to Sparks Nevada to visit with her grandpa where he went hunting!!  Next he was part of a jury at the Ventura County Court.  Then we took him to the Pumpkin Patch.  Now he is on the way to Florida for a new adventure. 
This is such a great project for the kids...and the adults, everyone is so enthusiastic about it!!!  I decided that Jenna would love to have a book that shows her Flat Stanley's travels and adventures, and am going to do it with digital layouts and have them printed as a book.  This is the first layout:
For this layout I used Webster's Pages All About Me Digital Collection and also 'lifted' the design of the layout itself from this months Guest Design Team member Stephanie Garbett.
Stay tuned for more adventures of Jenna's Flat Stanley!!!
