How Sweet It Is

This mini album was created for the Crafty Scrapper Design Team and is on display at the store in Waxahachie, Texas.

Elizabeth’s senior year in high school is the subject of this sweet mini album.  

Although I have done larger album pages to chronicle the highlights of her high school days, this 6”X6” mini album  is by far, my favorite scrapbooking project that I have created to honor her achievements. 

My baby girl is now twenty-seven and is a college graduate living on her own with the responsibilities of an adult woman. 

I still scrapbook  her everyday experiences and important events, and always will, but until she marries and has children of her own, there will not be a subject as near and 
dear to my heart as the honors Liz achieved in high school.     
Please come along  with me  for some "Senior Moments".

I loved working with a new product out by Tim Holtz Ide-ology. It is called "Tissue Wrap" and it is lovely to work with. In this project I either gathered it, using needle and thread or pleated it, as seen in the above photo.
