A Perfect Day-Graduation Layout

The new Scrapbook room is almost finished. I am waiting on a couple of storage units. And tomorrow James leaves for college so we had to take a break from moving into the room. It's really coming together though and I love it! It's so wonderful being able to get up from my chair and walk over to a piece of equipment.  The one disappointment so far is that I am not able to use a laptop, we had to bring in the desktop computer. The Behcets has caused so many problems with my eyes I need a large screen computer monitor. The laptop was frustrating to say the least. However at least we had a solution and I didn't have to give up my blog!

In an effort to help with the heartbreak of James leaving for college (And it is bitter sweet-I am thrilled for him as he enters a new phase of his life, but I also know things will never be the same again.) I decided to work on layout for a picture of the two of us together.


Paper and Cardstock: Core'dinations Nostalgia and Scarlet, American Traditional Designs High School Earthtones, Reminisce Sophomore and School Stripe 2, American Crafts Everyday Howdy
Dies: Spellbinders Floral Doily Accent, Petite Scalloped Circles Large
Embellishments: Buttons, We R Memory Keepers Sew Easy Floss, Reminisce Stickers, Gold ABC Stickers (Stash), Prima Butterfly, Flower (Stash)

Challenge: Once Upon A sketch I tried to put the sketch in, but blogger is causing spacing issues, so I had to leave it out this time. I am sorry. But if you click on the link you can see it on their blog:)
