Tomorrow is the big day at our house: our daughter, Beth, will be officially finished with school. We're celebrating with a drop-in reception during the afternoon. When our oldest child graduated high school, I made him a scrapbook, and I continued that tradition with Andrew and now Beth. With each child, I planned to start early and work on their scrapbook gradually . . . but that never happened with any of them. This one was my latest start. I started last Saturday, needing it to be finished by this Saturday. I guess the fast-approaching deadline set a fire under me, because I finished it in five days! Needless to say, this is all I got done this week other than basic housekeeping (and even that suffered a little bit).
Here are a few pictures of Beth's finished scrapbook. I didn't include every page, just a few of my favorites. I had originally bought a kit at Wal Mart that had a cheapo album included. I hated that album, but there was nothing I could do about it. I knew I didn't have even $20 to spend on a nice one, but while Beth and I were out buying plates and such for her reception, I ran across a Making Memories faux leather album for just $8, so I grabbed it. I knew I wouldn't find anything near that quality for that price! Just a little blessing from the Lord, I think. He even cares about a scrapbook album! ;)
And, by the way. . . I'm NOT a scrapbooker! I just put a few things together and call it good. It's nowhere near as good as some I've seen, but sometimes I take out the boys' scrapbooks and look through them and remember them, which is what they're for, right? I've already looked through Beth's several times too. So please judge gently! LOL
I hope to find some time this weekend to post pictures from Beth's reception. After this, I think I can relax a bit and just get ready to travel on Thursday. I'm getting excited!
I'm participating in Can I Get a Whoop Whoop? at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. This isn't a fabric craft, of course, but it's what I worked on this week! I hope you'll go by and see what others have been working on too!
