Graduation...a time of reflection

When we were given the assignment to highlight gradations, I thought about doing a page of a neice or nephew since my kids are still too young, but then I started looking through an old album that I had made pre-scrapbooking.  And let me just note that I was destined to scrapbook...even back then.  I saved everything and found a way to make it pretty...even without EMBELLISHMENTS!!  *Shock*  I know...I should have warned you before I said that!! 

So I came upon probably one of the only pictures taken of me for my high school graduation.  My family wasn't "big" on taking pictures and I am pretty sure my neighbor took these and gave them to me later.  THANK YOU MRS. REUTER!!!!

So my advice to all you graduating and whose children are graduating is this...
1.  Take LOTS of pictures
2.  Document the "real" moments (the jitters, the tears...)
3.  Don't forget the journaling.  If you have a notebook that people can write message in...use some of those inserts for a page or two. 
4. Finally, carry plenty of KLEENEX!!!!!

Finally, Scrappin Sports and More has TONS of graduation themed products.  As well, the Family line is mostly solid colored (as seen above) and you can easily find your school color combination.  Still want more?  Customize YOUR OWN PAPER!!!
