5th Grade Graduation Layout for Lasting Memories #692

My goal for this month is to finish my oldest son's elementary school album, since he is already 22 and I should have done this years ago! Thanks to this week's Lasting Memories challenge, I was able to put another layout into his album. Sandy asked us to create a layout with at least four squares and a square shaker box. I pulled out an old sketch of mine that had lots of squares, and was able to fit the shaker box into one of the photo spaces. I love challenges that make me get creative and step outside of my comfort zone, so thanks to Sandy for her inspiration. We're playing with shapes the whole month of March at Lasting Memories and would love to have you join us!

Wow, a lot of photos and still get all the colors throughout your two page layouts, and the shaker was a great idea to split up photos and embellish your layout. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble, Festive Frday and Color Dare. You have been pinch proofed.

This page is so cute and captures a wonderful memory. But my absolute favorite thing about this post is that you are working on books even though it's been so long! I really want to get going on scrapbook pages again because mine are getting older too fast too! Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble :)
