School memories can be expensive! Don't let them!

One of my facebook friends just expressed her frustration on her wall about how expensive is to order school photo packages, even the most basic one can cost more than $30.
My thought on this is " ARE YOU CRAZY?"
I think that anyone can take beautiful pictures of their kids with their digital camera, and still create wonderful school keepsakes without having to deplete their bank account!
Use that money to pay for college!;)
You can make a cute scrapbook page for less than $5, and it is much more meaningful than a picture taken from someone that doesn't even know your kid!
If you look on my website, and search in the template gallery for the keyword "school", or  "elementary", or "yearbook" you will find lots of easy to use templates to create your very own school keepsake.
These are some of my favorites:
1st day:
 Template ID: 56459
Template ID: 513

Template ID: 40566
Aren't these just perfect to record their very 1st day?
Party pages:

Template ID: 56460
Perfect to help your kid remember the fun he/she had at school!

School picture:
Template ID: 25743

  ABC page:
Template ID: 358

Last day of school:
Template ID: 62656

 All these scrappages can be preserved in a beautiful post bound album. 
 Template ID: 64407
Template ID: 56458
Template ID: 39864
Template ID: 38561
Template ID: 37978
You can make one for each kid, or one for all, you choose!

You can also have fun creating a whole yearbook, especially if you have many photos.
You can ask for more pictures to the teachers, room moms, other parents that might have been there for parties and field trips etc.
Here are a few examples:

 Thanks to the new import page feature, these books can be printed in 5x5, 8x8 or 12x12 sizes, no matter what size the template was originally created for! You can also mix and match your favorite pages from any template and transform them in another yearbook or single scrap pages.
