High School Graduation Time

Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous day!  Couldn't ask for a more beautiful day then today!  The sun is shining and temps are low!  Fall is approaching and I'm so happy for some much needed cooler weather!
I've been working on this layout a little bit at a time this past week.
These pictures are from my son's graduation five years ago.  It's hard to believe that it was that long ago.  It was a proud moment for me, as he is my oldest and my first child to graduate.  I used a kit I bought from Leanne's blog, ArtfulDelight, which is filled with Crate Paper's School Spirit collection.  Actually everything on this layout with the exception of the October Afternoon mini alphabet letters is in her September kit. Leanne has a layout challenge this week where you are to create a layout showcasing something your child or family member has done at school or in a sport that made you proud.  I based my layout on the sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays
I used my new notebook border punch by Fiskars, and as always lots and lots of layering!
Thanks for stopping by!
