Scrapbook for Dad

Our Dad is retiring after 33 years of teaching. Tomorrow is his last day. In honor of his retirement, my mom, sister, and I put together a scrapbook. My mom brought over all the photos and together, the three of selected the ones to use. After getting copies made, we started assembling the pages. Here is our rough layout:

This was my first experience with scrap booking. My sister has done a little, but she was frequently occupied with this roaring monster who wouldn't take a nap. So, we just made it up as we went along. I found my rotary cutter and cutting mat to be invaluable tools along the way. Additionally, I had purchased a scrapbook kit several years ago (that had yet to be put to use) which made the whole process much easier. A special thank you to my husband for proofreading and checking the layout of the pages before final assembly. Here are a few of the final pages:

Overall, I think scrap booking could be a fun pastime. Although, I don't know where I will find the time with the vegetable garden, chickens, and orchards to tend to.
