THE GRADUATE

My page today is of my daughter and her Graduation in 2012 - how quickly the years go - it really does seem only yesterday she was having her first day at school and I was in tears having to leave her in the hands of others.  Now she's all grown up - the words of that old song Sunrise Sunset really are very poignant.

I think Scrapbooking can bring with it a real sense of nostalgia - I'm a person who sadly lives in the past and it doesn't really do me any good - I need to look to the future but I find that difficult.  That's probably why I like to scrapbook - I can get lost in the past again for a while.

My page has been inspired by the Let's Get Sketchy sketch - 





I've used the lovely Kaisercraft papers in from the Memory Lane Collection together with other added bits and bobs, the butterfly from SU Bold Butterfly Framelits and the tags from an SU punch. The title stickers are called Thickers from American Crafts.

I'm also adding this into Kaisercraft's own challenge of a Tic Tac Toe box - I've used the bottom row.
