First Day of School - scrapbook layout (WAW43)

Hello Delightful friends and family!
Well, this week was emotional.  Cannot believe our oldest grandchild started school.  Seems like he was just born a year ago!  Had to get this documented and finished for his scrapbook while I still had those thoughts running through my mind. I get choked up still!   So little Princess Addy-tude and I are adjusting to our day without her big brother, I do go pick him up from school and have him for a few hours, but it is strange.  Addy is definitely enjoying her one on one time with me! (and I with her, too!)
All of the papers and elements are from an assortment of digital goodness from A Cherry On Top.
Here are the ones I can remember:  Sweet Digi Doodles, Doodledoo Borders, Sugar and Spice Kit and Alphas; I used Microsoft Publisher to make the layout and typed out in a text box the journaling.
I am entering this in the Word Art Wednesday Challenge #43

  Hopefully I'll have a card to share later today!  I have plans to work in my mom's yard on Satruday morning.  She had a hip replacement surgery 2 weeks ago and will be traveling home in a few weeks (she had the surgery at Stanford) so my daughter Amy and I will be getting the weeds pulled and some yard maintenance done.  My son Sean has been putting in new hardwood floors in her bedroom (with a little help from my dh) so we are getting a few things done while she's been away.  It does make it difficult to get crafty when you are away from the craft table!!

Thanks for visiting!

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him on high, because he has known My name.  Psalm 91:14 


  1. Natalie: This is a great layout. I would have never known it was digital if I hadn't read your post. It's darling. Our Design Team Member, Gemiel will be excited to see it. She's our "layout girl" and always loves to see layouts entered into our challenges. This is really sweet, Nat, and I thank you SO MUCH for participating and supporting Word Art Wednesday like you do. You've been a huge blessing to us for so long and I hope you know how very grateful I am. Hope you're having a blessed week too.
