Hope you are all having the time and energy to be doing a little crafting here and there. My husband and I are planning on downsizing. One of the first steps we have to do to get the house ready to go on the market is to have our upstairs carpets cleaned (then we will know if they have to be replaced). In order to do that I have to pack up my scrapbook room. I am a little bummed (it will put a big stall on my scrapping) and excited (I will be able to go through and downsize my scrapping stuff). I love it but there is a lot that I honestly haven’t used for years. It adds to confusion so I might as well let it go (and maybe someone else will be blessed by it) and when I get to unpack I will be able to organize a little better.
I used a piece of beloved camera paper as a background paper. It is a little busy so I matted the pictures on a piece of green wood paper (green matches the blanket and Tim’s school colors) and further matted the individual pics on black paper. I figured out where I wanted the pics (layering a bit) and adhered them to the green paper. I added the kite sticker (I have had it for years) and then the word “soar”. Finally I added a journaling card (it had a chevron design at the top and that coordinated with the design in Tim’s blanket) explaining how our family friend, Colleen, made Tim the blanket.
Love scrapping graduation layouts but happy they are coming to a close.
