Grown Up

Recently, I have been thinking about how both of my kids are in school.  How can that be?  I have the extreme treat of having my son attend my elementary school.  I haven't seen him much, but when I do, it just brightens my day!  There is obviously a comfort level so I have been able to enjoy this week tremendously.  Ella is at the same preschool as Nathan was last year.  I have only received positive feedback...she goes with the flow, is quiet at times.....STOP!  what?  The girl who never stops talking, who stirs the pot at every minute.  I hope it lasts...LOL!

I made this layout using Nathan's Pre-K graduation pictures.  The school does it right with a ceremony and caps and gowns! 

I made this using Crate's Restoration line!  Wow, this stuff is gorgeous.  It is featured in The Nook September kit along with other amazing goodies like the yellow ribbon!  I love when you can find coordinating paper to go with the color of your photos.  I actually desaturated my photo a bit to dull down the blue and yellow.  I knew the Crate was more vintagy and distressed so I wanted it to go together.

Speaking of the yellow is a detail I created!

I have my scrappy energy back and it feels good to enjoy this hobby again!  I have been playing a bunch and will have lots of shares!!

Happy day!
