“Soar”ing

Hello crafters,

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 believe that Tim will soar!

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.

God bless!

  1. That blanket looks inviting to snuggle up in , Colleen did a good job. Hope your making progress with your downsizing. I’ve stopped ,to help a family do a Full house estate sale. Hope all is going great!!

  2. Happy days. It is a lot of hard work to get ready to move. Maybe this time will be the last move. I always dreaded it. It is hard to give some of your crafts away. Soon as you do, you will need them. Happens every time. I like how you used what looks like wood paneling behind the pictures. Makes everything stand out more. You sure made Tim’s graduation special. Something good will come along for him. Love the pretty blanket Colleen made him. Another adventure is store for the Turner family.
