TCR #4

I used 2 different versions of this week's color challenge at The Color Room and 2 different versions of the sketch as well. The first is of my daughter-in-law's graduation from the College of Eastern Utah on May 1, 2010. We are so very proud of her for this big step. Not only did she graduate while working part time and being a wife and mother to my two darling grand kids, but she was also selected for her Accounting/Business department's student of the year award.

After 79 years, this was also the final graduation of the College of Eastern Utah. It is being merged with Utah State University and expanding the satellite distance education campus where I am currently employed. Come July it will be called by the unimaginative name "Utah State University College of Eastern Utah." Wonder how many people will actually say all that!

For this layout I used Best Creation Inc. paper for the background and Bazzil cardstock. The blooms are all by Prima, as are the E-line pearls. I used a template and Tim Holtz black ink dabber to do the lines. I also did the distressing and journal outline with the paint dabber, using a Silhouette cut as a template for the journal spot. I also used the Silhouette to cut the title. The web trim is by May Arts.

This layout of Russ giving Dutch her bath uses Basic Grey " max @ whiskers" collection.

Two great pages but what?! No funny animal story today? Or do the photos tell it all!
