I'm now the Mom of Graduates!

Congratulations to all of the classes of 2016 at every high school in the United States! I happen to be one of those parents that are celebrating the highest mark of a teenager who is about to get the rude awakening of the outside world! LOL Seriously, though, both of my boys fought hard for the progress that they achieved and I couldn't be more proud of them.

I created a layout page using a template by Lisa Rosa Designs, which you can find HERE. The kit I used is a collection of items from the Digiscrap Parade "Commencement".

The dust is clearing -- here comes new snags!

Every year, Buckhannon hosts a Strawberry Festival that attracts bands, baton twirlers, singers, bands, crafters and the like from many of our surrounding states -- even from other countries! This is the 75th year, our Diamond Jubilee, and I am celebrating with a small token of the event -- which you can find HERE.

And here is another set of snags that I created from a 2013 Scraps N Pieces blog train called "Just Be" that I found while cleaning my external hard drive. I used a tube by VeryMany, called "Spring," which you can find HERE. I used AL Serenade from FontZone.

My Progress and a few snags

It's been some time since I last posted, due to the end of my Spring 2016 college term, but it was well worth it. I am still continuing to maintain a 3.0 GPA, while taking care of a brittle diabetic, my elderly mother, my mentally handicapped brother and my 18 year old, who is about to become a WVU Tech Golden Bear in the upcoming Fall 2016 semester. I have been one busy momma! I will be doing two 4 week classes to get those semesters to drop a bit and I'm looking forward to them. It gives me a release from the stress, just like my designing does, and gets me two steps closer to my degree. Hopefully, it will be a nice summer so that I can enjoy a bit of sunshine while doing my classes. It's simply been drab the first half of the spring here in West Virginia, due to all of the rain we have been getting. For once, I'd love to see the sun again.

When I did decide to design again, and possibly do another tutorial, I found that I was dangerously low on my disk space on my external drive. So, I have had to weed through the kits I'd never use (or hadn't used in years) and do a bit of 'spring cleaning' to grab myself more space. I came across a 2013 blog train from Scraps N Pieces called 'Sunkissed' (no longer available) and used a old template from an O'Scraps blog train called 'Easter 2014' by Lucky Star Scraps (no longer available). I just love this tube by Nocturne, called 'Juice,' which you can purchase HERE. The font is called 'Magnolia Sky' at DaFont.
