With Jimmy's graduation fast approching I have been concentrating on getting his scrapbook done, I am slowly reducing the piles of pictures I have that need scrapped. Right now I am concenrtrating on his sports pictures, and I am kinda cheating I am taking Robbie's sports layouts that I did last year, you can see them here and creating the same layout for Jimmy sometimes mixing up the papers. With this method I am whipping through them quite quickly. I am also working on just putting the pictures on the pages and will do the titles, journaling and embellishments later. If they don't get done before his party on June 16, I can still display the pages with the pictures on them. Since these layouts aren't quite finished I figured I could show you some of the layouts I have managed to get done this winter. Along with several of the layouts I created for the Warren Township Community Center Scrapbooking classes. Just about all these layouts have come from our How To Books, but I can't remember which ones and I don't have my books with me right now to tell you which layout designs I used.
This first is the Warren Township Community Center (WTCC) Scrapbook layout for the month of April.
When I first saw this layout in the catalog I immediately had these pictures in Mind. Yes My son's name is James Dean after his two Gandfathers My Dad Dean and his bio Paternal Gpa James. These pictures just totally show his casual ornery side. I did change it up a little and used the A Hope Stamp Set cause the wings matched his shirt.

This next layout is one I created for my family scrapbook but will be in Jimmy's at his party. Gee it seems like yesterday they were this little. Now they are a Freshman in College and engaged, a Senior in High School Leaving for the Army in August, a Freshman in High School and a 7th grader, they grow up way to fast.
