My Dad's Graduation

Lately I've been a little unmotivated when it comes to spending time in my craft room. I think stress kind of squashes any creativity I do have. However, when I have had the desire I've kind of been wanting to scrapbook. Maybe it's because I have taken a very long break from it, but it is kind of fun to get some more memories down in my book.

I knew I wanted to get the pictures from my dad's graduation in my book sooner rather than later, and I wanted to keep it rather simple. I also thought that since my dad has been working on building drawings my whole life I would use simple lines on my layout.



I'll be headed to Chicago on Wednesday with Chase to go to CHA. I'm super excited to see so many friends there!

Also, Look Up! is back in-stock at Practicing Creativity!

Ohhhhhhh, goodness! What a special piece! I DO, so completely understand how sometimes, even those of us lucky enough to have a craft room... sometimes can't tap into the magic... Well, OBVIOUSLY, you hit a vein with this marvelous piece. I love that you listened to the subject and kept it simple. THAT'S what makes it SO great - that connection. Speaking of GREAT! YOU + CHA! And your darling hubbin in tow! Too cool! I'm certain you'll be feeling that "magic" of crafting again after that parade of inspirational fun! WOW, girl! You're going to have a blast! Wahooooo!

Very lovely page. I have felt the same about my craft room, very unmotivated. And I too have been craving making LO's. I gain so much more pleasure from making them, than cards.

Have fun at CHA! :-)
