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.


  1. Great job on that double pager to start your senior year album, Megan. Love your stick pins that you made. They add so much to the flowers.

  2. I love that you scrap these important memories! Love the colors and your home-made stick pins. They turned out great!

  3. I also like the colors & your stick pins & glittery flowers.

  4. Super job with scrapping your senior the helpful hints on inking! Thanks for the idea!!

  5. What cool beads! I love how your pins turned out.
