Yearly Graduation Page

Hi friends,

Starting 4 years ago I started doing a 8 1/2″x11″ scrapbook layout of all the graduation announcements that I received.  I use to throw them all in a box with all of the other cards I received.  I felt a little guilt because of the awesome pics that were never to be seen again as well as the expense of the announcements.  This is a perfect way to organize them and then to enjoy them later on.

I must admit that I had to trim down a lot of the announcements.  The only one I didn’t trim or cover up was the one of my niece Haley.  I just thought that it was perfect to announce what the page was about.  Before trimming and layering pictures and announcements I used a black sheet of cardstock and covered it with velum that had stars all over it.  It doesn’t show a lot but I really like where it peeks through.  I added some stickers in bigger blank spots and then called the page done.  I really like it.  So far I have four layouts in two page protectors.  I just have them in a basket at this point.  In a few years I will probably invest in an album.

Tell me this isn’t a great idea.  🙂

Love to all!

God bless!

  1. Graduations are so exciting for the graduates and the family. A time to think of the future that lies ahead. Bitter sweet. Growing up too fast, and then proud of what they have become. A nice page. Full of dreams and expectations. Good times.
