Graduation...The Second Time Around

Happy Friday!!!

We are preparing for the big event of the year in our house... high school graduation... so in preparation I did a layout for the scrapbook...not for high school graduation but for Kindergarten graduation.

YES! Kindergarten graduation...The cute graduation cap and gown, the small tassel, so cute.  I remember him practicing for the graduation program and how nervous all the children were, little did I know this was just a rehearsal of what is to come!

Pencil Papers from Archivers
Die Cut letters from Speaking of School Cricut Cartridge 
In just a few short months I will be doing a layout for high school...time has flown by so fast andI just can not believe it!

Time to Make the Donuts!

As I prepare one of the many layouts for my Senior in high school I get the chance to take a trip down memory lane! I decided to do a layout of one his pre-school field trips...did I say preschool? AND the more amazing thing is I remember what happened on the field trip! How time flies...and now we are trading trips to the donut shop for AP Physics...wow! This is going to be an emotional and exciting year and I have much to scrap!

I titled this layout "Time to Make the Donuts" and I used the Mickey Font from Cricut.

Love the colors and the Mickey Font

I remember this field trip like it was yesterday! and it was actually 13 years ago!!!!! 

One of many layouts to come...its going to an interesting year :)

A Senior in high school and this is a preschool layout...I have work to do! Have a great week!

Boys Boys and Boys

I love my boys! All three of them, yes three of them! Ages range from 3 weeks (today!) to 17 years old. Yes you read that right and its not a typo! :) I do find doing layouts for my boys seems to be a challenge and I need more techniques to make them cute and interesting without making them girly. I am looking for some options so if anyone has some let me know. I think I will try Tim Holtz and there are so many options with his line of products and they tend to lean on the masculine side however you can use them for anything. I am on quest for all things TH, classes , videos, etc...

But for now I am working with various things and getting scrapbooks ready for my senior in high school....ahhh!!! I am taking a trip down memory lane right now as I scrapbook his early years and it is a mix of emotions I am going through. I will post pics soon of some of the pages I have done thus far so be on the lookout!
The vets! 17 and 7

My precious three week old!

They are just wonderful and I wouldn't want to imaging life without them!

I have tons of reasons to keep scrapbooking and these are my top three reasons :)

I will keep searching for new techniques to bring my boys' pages to life so if you have suggestions let me know!
