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.
