Off To University Layout

Well this is the 1st double page layout of my sons new steps to University. Oh how I miss him. I'm really lucky that his university is only 2 hours away if I get those really big mommy pains. I use it as an excuse to get some scrapbook shopping in as there's quite a few amazing little stores in the St. Catherine's area. I have lots of pages planned ahead as I have a new friend in his dormatory named Brittany who loves to take pictures and she's sending them off to me so I can scrap them. (She's also a scrapbooker, so I'm getting some pretty great pictures.)

For my layout I used the Close To My Heart paper from the Rock Star set. I love the colors in this paper pack and it's so easy to match it to so much. I cut my letters out with my Cricut Cartridge called Varsity Letters. I had a hard time finding this cartridge, but eventually a family trip to Conneticut landed me into a gigantic Walmart that had it. On the left hand page I added a single picture of my boy heading off to University and cut out some of the leftover stars and pop dotted them at different heights. In the centre of them I added rhinestones in the same colors. On the right hand layout I used some Close To My Heart blue rick rack and added a couple of embellishments from Big Memory Ideas. My next one is going to be Dorm life where I snapped a few pictures of his room. Should be coming soon.

Hope it inspires you,
Hugs xx

Carolyn,those varsity letters are so perfect for your layout. I love all your little details that you add to your layouts. Love the picture of the suitcases piled high in the back of the van. Looking forward to the "dorm" pictures! Eeeek they should be good!
