It's Graduation Week!!

I have a lot of catching up to do! It has been a crazy week in the Wilson household! Tues was Ashleigh's grad, Thurs was her last day at school and coming from a school of maybe 170 kids, this was a tough day! Alot of tears by all, including me! Afterwards we took the Gr 8's for a beach day/BBQ and they had a blast! Thurs night was Andrew's Gr 12 grad and today I feel like I have hit a wall of omg, I've been so busy, now what do I do?? It's a weird feeling!! But here are some photo's that I wanted to share :)

Ready to go!!

Thank You

Today my daughter graduates Gr 8, Thursday my son graduates high school and will be off to Trent University in the fall. It has been a very emotional time for this mama!! I wanted to do something for the staff at Deer Park (public school) but wasn't sure what as there's 25 staff members. So, I came up with the idea to bake cookies and do up a little thank you gift. Each has 2 butterscotch cookies, but since 3 have peanut butter chips, I marked those with the circle. I think they turned out pretty cute!

DSC93 - Soaring with my Imagination!

Morning and happy Friday! So this weeks challenge at Digitally Sweet is all about transportation and we're sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digital Outlet. I wanted to do something a little different .. I have this image saved that I found on Pinterest (where else right?!) and this is what I would love on our back deck. Since we're remodelling it this year, I'm hoping we can incorporate something similar to this. I love this!! So why not do a layout, right?

Huge thank you to our sponsors and if you have time, come on over and join the fun!

Shades of Blue at Lasting Memories

Morning! I forgot to post this! We had our spring retreat this past weekend and though it took me time to get in the groove, I managed to finish 31 layouts. Not bad! Our challenge at Lasting Memories this week is to use shades of blue and white. Since I was working on my wedding album, you get to see a page from that :)

CTMH "Frosted" WOTG kit

We had a small family ceremony almost 12 yrs ago in my Aunt's backyard where I spent the majority of my childhood, right up till I met my husband actually. So it was only fitting to be married there.

Be sure to visit LM and see all the shades of blue and white and play along if you can! Have a great day!
