Beauty & Brains

This is Astrid, my son Ben's fiance, at her Master's graduation from KU. I'm not sure who is with her so will let her fill out the tag. She and Ben will both graduate with their PhDs from KU next May.

I just loved the way this layout turned out until I added the title, especially that big "N," which was the only one left, but man those suckers stuck tight and there was no removing them without taking half the page with them. So disappointing. I did a lot of hand cutting and doodling on this page.

Probably the reason I love this layout so much, besides the lovely young lady, is that it is chock full of my favorite brand... Prima, including those offending alphabet stickers! The only elements on this page that are not by Prima are the lace and the swirls, which are made by Karen Foster and which I purchased at my LSS.


Another graduation photo of Astrid and her friends Nati and Kiley. I left the journaling spot blank for her to fill in again.

This page, once again features mostly Prima product with some fabulous Webster Page's bloomers thrown in, along with some Martha Stewart punches. I also used a Becky Fleck page map.

Thanks for taking a peek!
