Michelle's graduation

My sister graduated in the spring of 2010 with her bachelors in Science.

Details: Gray paper is Cinder by Bazzill. Patterned papers are the A & B sides of Madras from the Silk Road line by SEI. I also made a pocket out of the photo matting to put her party invitation, thank you card, and church bulletin announcement. It made a great place to store mementos that I don't normally scrap.

Changing Colors

Where I grew up, we had tons of maples and oaks and other trees that changed leaf colors in the fall. Where I live now, the dominant trees are live oaks and junipers and they don't change leaf colors. I was so excited that the house we bought had two huge red oak trees. They make beautiful colored leaves in the fall!

This might be my new favorite layout :)

Details: Leaf paper is Fall Leaves from the Night Fall collection by American Crafts. The beautiful rosettes (or delights as the packaging calls them) are by American Crafts in Spice. The Orange pattern strip is also from Night Fall. Yellow paper is Beeswax and orange is Yam, both by Bazzill. Title stickers are by Making Memories. Journaling block is October Afternoon.

Glass Blowing

Since this year was our first year in our new home and the first year with a full size Christmas tree, we needed a bunch of ornaments. Craig and Lacy treated us to a glass blowing ornament class. We had fun, but it was a pretty steep learning curve. 

Details:Background paper is by Imaginisce.

Bulb Exposure

We did some fun bulb exposure shots last fourth of July. The city had to cancel fireworks due to our extreme drought. We made our own festive fun.

Details: Star paper is Celebration from We R Memory Keepers's Red White & Blue collection. Scalloped paper is Letters home from the same collection. Backyard Party is Summertime Fun from the Red White & Blue collection. The title was cut using the Lyrical Letters Cricut cartridge. Fireworks were cut, using an SVG file I found, on SCAL.
