One of the categories of stories we are encouraged to scrap in the BPC Twelve workshop is Family Stories. Robbie and I have a relatively new story that
we I have begun to tell fairly often, so I decided it was time to get that story down in print.
Journaling reads: I've often joked with Robbie that even though he is in reality much smarter than I am, I had earned one more degree than him, which at least gave the appearance that I was somewhat intelligent. However, when he began working towards his MBA, I knew the gig was up. I had completed my MBA five years earlier with all "A"s and one "B" (In Economics), and I was sure he would top that with all "A"s. I have to confess that it totally made my day when he also earned one "B" (in Economics!!), and now I often joke that we are truly and finally educationally equally yoked. (Even if he really is still smarter than me!)
I also finally completed the mini-album celebrating Robbie's graduation. I started with a chipboard album and covered the pages with patterned paper. (The album actually had pages that spelled out GRADE, I simply omitted the "E" and made it GRAD.) Then I did something brand new for me - I painted the edges of the pages with acrylic paint!
Here's a look through the album.
I had so much fun completing this layout and album! Have you scrapped any family stories or completed a mini-album project lately?
