Graduation Joy

My oldest is graduating from college.  She is amazing.  She has a 3.9 GPA and is the kindest and sweetest person I know.  And I'm not just saying that because I'm her mother!  I have no doubt she has an amazing future.

So this layout was inspired by Lauren's accomplishments, and it was fortunate that it fit in perfectly with the Can You Digi It? challenge of "Anything But a Card"!  The background paper that frames the LO so well is from Grunge Neutrals Paper Pack by Delightfully Distressing Designs.  It also has coordinating elements, which makes for a super versatile digital collection!

Thanks much for visiting,

One Day So Perfect

Back in January, I had the opportunity of a lifetime to go to Japan on a business trip.  My college senior, Lauren, studies Japanese and I was thrilled to be able to take her with me!  We were able to spend one day touring Mt. Fuji and the surrounding area, where I took some of my most all-time favorite photographs!

I used some gorgeous neutral white paper for the background on my journaling from Delightfully Distressing Designs.  Sometimes its hard to find good neutral papers that won't clash or take away from your journaling, and these papers are great for that!

Thanks for looking, and hope you have some time to craft today!

Birthday Flowers

There is a fun challenge at Can You Digi It? this week!  It's called Birthday Flowers.  Using that theme, I put together the layout below.  It highlights when my middle child turned the magic age of 18.  Birthday pages are common, but turning 18 isn't!!  The background paper that I used is from the Birthday Bash Mini Kit from Green Goddess Creations...check out the kit!

Thanks for looking, and have fun putting together some birthday flowers!!
