Limited Edition (Jillibean Soup Neopolitan Bean Bisque)


Yes, another first day of school photo (different from the other two I've scrapped. OK, not by much. LOL!) This one is about Alexa choosing a nickname to use in school. Why? Because her teachers said she had to. There are two Alexas in all of her classes. In fifth grade her teacher got around having two Alexas (both with a last name that started with S) by calling her by her full name but I guess this doesn't fly in sixth grade. Alexa has never had a nickname but because she was put on the spot she chose Lexi. At this point, she's wondering why because it's not really her. We'll see how this one plays out...

  3. Fun layout! Love the bright colors - especially that fun blue with red floral background.

    That does seem a bit extreme for the teachers to ask the child give herself a nickname. Especially if she'll never respond to it if it's not her. Well - much luck to Alexa! Hope she has a great year despite her re-naming! :)

  6. I hope she will adjust to her name, or stand up for herself to not be called something she doesn’t want to be called!!!
    Love the colors!

  7. Very nice layout! However...I can't believe a teacher would REQUIRE a student to choose a new name! My husband is a teacher and he would never do that!

  8. Like how you used the black background on this one! Works very well with the colors. I need to remember this because I haven't used black in awhile and it looks sharp! :)

    What a bummer about the nickname thing. It does feel kind of off. When I taught, I had several classes where the children had duplicate names. But never with the same last initial. Although, I didn't like calling them (example) Ben A. and Ben S. I just called them by their first and last names when wanting to get their attention.

  9. I like this layout a lot--which is always the case. BUT ... that teacher is wrong for asking your daughter to do it. If she wanted that it would be a different case. I supervise teachers and I would not allow that to happen to any student.

  16. Love how those patterns pop off the black...very strange but if both are picking nicknames it could be a way to bring out their personality?

  17. Interesting! I've never heard of a teacher doing this either! I've seen them just go with last names, but never asking for a new name!
    Definitely a scrapworthy event for her!
