Now on with the hop!

I have a friend who has gotten me back into scrapbooking and today I have some layouts I have put together. My daughter had her 5th grade graduation in the spring and she went to Serene Hills Elementary, a school with a sailor theme so naturally all my pages had to have the nautical theme in them.

Area on the bottom and to the left is for journaling. This was their whole class posing for pictures and doing the now famous, "DAB" pose.

Yes, I know I'm not suppose to put a picture in the very middle of a layout but I just couldn't help myself. The anchor frame is suppose to be for monograms but I thought it would be cute as a frame and the center of the layout so I went with it.

Journaling area on the bottom again. This page showcases mom, dad, and little brother with the graduate.

I centered the picture and everything I read or watch on You Tube about scrapbooking says to not put a picture directly in the middle of the page but I'm not good at reading or listening.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut all the embellishments and all the embellishments came from the Silhouette store.

Your next destination is with Amanda .  We hope you're enjoying your journey!

If the currents have drifted, you can find the full lineup here:


  1. Well, I just love these pages! Even the ones with the pictures smack in the middle, LOL. You know what I say, if it looks good to your eye, it doesn't matter what the "experts" say. You did your Silhouette proud! It's fortunate the school has a nautical theme to gives you a great jumping off point. I like when that happens. It was a pleasure hopping with you.

  2. These layouts are cute and I really like the one with the anchor in the middle since it really draws your eye there. Putting the date on the anchor works well too.

  3. Great layouts! I love the dab pose!

  4. Fantastic layouts! I love all the nautical themed pages, just perfect for this hop! You did some wonderful cuts! Thank you so much for hopping with us!


  5. Great layouts. This page oozes FUN.
