pre-school graduate | a layout for doodlebug design…

As I created this layout for my Doodlebug assignment recently, I just couldn’t fathom that these photos of Zach were taken 3 whole years ago…it’s crazy how fast time has flown by.  I’m so grateful for photographs and scrapbooks to help me remember all of the fun (and some of the not-so-fun) events in the life of my family…

What?  This collection doesn’t look like the same one I used on my layout?

Well, that’s the beauty of this collection – it’s made up of neutral colors – black, white, silver, gold – and then you can add whatever colors you want to make it work with your photos or school colors or whatever you wish!


I perused my Doodlebug collection and found lots of orange papers and elements to use on my page.


I love how it all worked together to create a cohesive page, where you’d never guess all the items weren’t “meant” to go together.


And now I can’t believe we’re nearing the end of another school year.  This little pre-school graduate is wrapping up his 2nd grade year.  And our daughter will be a senior in high school next year.  Crazy.  It seems like she was just graduating from pre-school!


Thanks for stopping by – have a great Friday!! :)
