The Start of Senior Year
I like to start every year of my college albums the same. I do my first two page spread about the first semester. I include my schedule of the classes I took and the teachers I had. I also put pictures of where I lived. I finally was out of the dorms this year, and I don't miss it one bit. The day before I started this page, the deans list came out in my parents newspaper. I always make it archival, and then include the deans list.
I always struggle to get everything I want on this page. I decided to only use a few pictures, since I had more writing this time. I was really excited to make my own stick pins. A friend gave me some pins to play with, and I had some beads from my dabbles in jewelry making long ago.
I love how the pins sparkled and shined with the rest of my paper and embellishments. I used some Prima and Imaginscense flowers. The aqua brads were Making Memories. I am also in love with American Crafts Glittery Buttons. The big aqua flower was too bright for my page, so I ended up inking it with some metallic silver, and it toned it down a little bit.
I am very excited to start the rest of my senior year pages. I did so much through the fall, and have some really fun supplies I am looking forward to playing with.
