MAY 23, 2012, Graduation Day

What a day, knowing that your youngest daughter is about to graduate from High School. So many things goes though your mind, you ask yourself, was I good parent. I hope I was.

I can still remember the day I had told her Daddy that we we going to have another baby,the first thing that came to our minds was it could be a little boy. Kelly would have his fishing partner and and a golfing buddy, were his first thoughts. But as the months grew on by, I knew deep down that it was another girl. Which was a blessing, at least for her older sister would have a playmate.
I'm going to post some of my favorite photos of her.
Back in 7th grade a few of friends dressed as clowns for the Doll and Pet parade.
Hannah is the center clown.

What a beautiful girls. Off  to JR Prom.
As we move on the Senior year.

 Here we are on the day of graduation, May 23,2012,so proud on my baby girl. I wish her with success and happiness.

Here is my take on that sketch:
Let the adventure begin....

Next I'll show our Quote challenge by Marisa, this is her last quote. She is leaving
soul scrappers. Here is her quote.

Sometimes the path you're on is not as important as the direction you're heading. ~Kevin Smith

I decided to use a self photo and I would like to see you do so as well but it isn't compulsory.
Also I would like to see a dark background with bright bold colors that pop off the page.
I Here what I used, black cardstock,bright magenta, and orange. With Yellowand purple


Now this Layout, we had to scrap using non girly or boyish colors.
So , this was really hard for me since I have 2 adorable girls, I always
use flowers and pinks and whites reds. Anyways, I did just the opposite, I used browns
and beige's. And YES a truck.


Here is Jennifer at 6 months in baby walker.I look back on this photo , thinking how small she was, and then next month she will turn 21, wow where has time gone.

For my last Layout is my word challenge for the month over at

" Live and work but do not forget to play, to have FUN in life and really enjoy it." By. Eileen Caddy
Life is full of stress. We all have things that must get done, things we have to do. Sometimes finding balance between all things can really take its toll. When we finally slow down & breathe, we realize that life doesn't always have to be so hard, so busy. Sometimes if we just look for the FUN in it, life feels that much find the enjoyment, the playfulness, the whimsical, and sometimes the flamboyant in it. Whether it is just a moment or dare I say it, a lifetime.... find the FUN and show us what you GOT! So my word this month is FUN.

In this layout I did quite few different techniques.
I use my cricut to cut my word fun out then I dry embossed it. Then I did some masking on the words fun and play.
Well, I think I have cover everything I did this pass month. Until next time.
Have a fantastic week.

Scrapbooking isn't about scraps of paper and photos. Scrapbooking is about scraps of life - yours and those special to you.
