My Scrapbook Goals and How I'm Doing

Sorry I've been MIA

Things are going to be rather hit or miss over the next few weeks. My 17 yo who I suspect of having sensory issues for a while is finally having some more visible symptoms in the form of some muscle ticks. We have an appointment with my doctor in a couple of weeks. I think that this will be a blessing as we'll finally have something on paper that may help him get more help to complete his studies at the VoTech. But I have been gather medical records from his pediatrician, eye function evaluations, auditory evaluations, and hospital records from a head injury he had as a toddler. This will be the first time everything has been gathered into one package which I think will really prove to be beneficial.

In the meantime my 13 yo has expressed an interest in attending the local public military school for high school. Not sure how I feel about this complete but toward that end of making sure he's well prepared and well grounded before he goes off to a school setting I decided we need to change things up. So I've ordered some new things and as soon as it gets here I'll been spending a few days getting it input on the computer so he can get started as soon as possible.

So yesterday I decided I really needed to have a scrapping session. I actually got 6 pages done for our 2006 school album. I plan to show them off in pairs so this will be the 1st of 3 entries today.

This first layout today is a page to highlight Jacob's trip to Africa to spend a semester there as an undergrad student. I created the background paper myself using colors from the elements set I was using. The Elements are from An Anonymous Life's Etosha set. I took the Africa shaped frame and lowered the transparency and then tucked the photos up under it. I was in such a hurry that I forgot to right now which font I used.

The second layout is from our field trip to the National Weather Station in Ruskin, FL. It was a really interesting field trip. The paper is from A Work in Progress's Baby Boy set. And I again forgot to write the font down.
