round #6 at Paper secrets

It's such a terrible photo of my page but I can't get my hands to stop shaking when I try to photograph my pages. This was for the Scrap Your A** Off challenge at Paper Secrets and so far I am still in it. The next sketch has me really stumped but then again so did this one.

This is for Jared's album, he graduated June 13th and we are so proud of him. The next page I do will be for Zachary's graduation so I can keep it

I have other pages to post but they are for Jillian's pregnancy album and she doesn't want to see them until her shower SO since she looks at my blog on occasion I can't post the pages until after July 8th.

Have a great day and thanks for checking out my blog.

Challenge # 6 at Got ink Girlz and Grad pictures

Zachary graduated June 8th 2011 from Odyssey Charter school and we are so proud of him. School has always been a struggle for Zachary and when he came up credit deficient last year I thought he would just chuck school and not try any more. He came to me and said he wanted his diploma but didn't want to be embarrassed by having to go back to his high school so we looked up an alternative way of achieving his diploma. He worked hard and got to graduate this year.

Jared graduated June 13th 2011 from Western High school. 4 years of hard work and dedication for this moment paid off for him. He got the ropes for being a loyal dedicated cadet in the ROTC program for all 4 years of his high school years. He loved the ROTC program and really bloomed under Lt. Col. Coode and Sargent J.

I am so proud of both boys for sticking with it even when time were very tough. I love you both so much.

This card was done for the Big Shot challenge over at gotinkoirlz blog. We would really love some feedback or leave a us a comment if you hop over and check us out. At Stampin Up we have alot of dies that are sold exclusively through Stampin Up and the Beautiful Wings embosslit is one of them. I love that you get 5 varied sizes of butterflies all embossed with their own design, it makes glittering them so easy. I'm not a huge fan of butterflies but I LOVE this die cut. The other thing Stampin Up sells is embossing folders, yes you can get them at craft stores but the Stampin Up folders are just a little bit larger AND the design goes to the edge where as the craft store folders don't go all the way to the edge. So when you are making a standard cards base our folders will the design to the very edge of your paper.
