Isn’t it wonderful when you find the perfect kits for your current photos? I’ve been lucky to find so many kits that relate so well to graduation when I have so many gorgeous photos of Elysse to scrap!

A new layout for The Digital Press

But you’ll notice we have a theme in common here lately… Elysse’s graduation with her Master’s Degree last weekend. We walked around campus taking several hundred photos with her in her cap, hood and gown. She joked that I have scrapbook ammunition for a while!

Milestone for Elysse

My oldest, Elysse, graduated with her Master’s Degree in Biomedical Science from Florida Atlantic University this past week. All her hard work paid off! She hasn’t received less than an A in I just can’t remember when. She has written innumerable essays and papers over the past month, several presentations and worked full time tutoring and mentoring other students getting THEM ready for their finals, too. I was honored to watch her cross that stage with a big smile on her face!

Then it was a trek around campus to get a few photos to commemorate the day.

Two more weeks done for 2014

I’m well into my second album for 2014 now and have actually printed all of them up to last week as of today. I plan to take advantage of Persnickety Prints’ semi-annual sale to get caught up on my printing of PL and I’ve already stocked up on more credits.

I do absolutely LOVE looking at these layouts!

Week 35 – using Just Jaimee’s Storyteller for October. I love all the paint, the textures, the hand drawn/colored elements. It’s just stunning!
