First & Last Days layout by Julie Jacob

I will admit it.  I am a Pinterest junkie.
When I saw this idea there, I knew I wanted to do it.
All it required was for me to dig through about 14 albums before I found my son's first day of Kindergarten picture.  But I found it!

My son Lucas graduated from High School last weekend.  On his last day of school, I took his picture...while he held a picture of himself on his first day of Kindergarten.  First and Last.
And I'll stop there, or I will be going for the Kleenex.

Ok.  It's a little hard to see how cute he was at 5.
Ok.  Still a little hard.  But trust me, he was cute.  And little.  So not 6'5".  How on earth did 13 years go by so fast?  I feel like I blinked.
I used a combination of Fabrications: Canvas, My Mind's Eye & October Afternoon.
Be careful...it can happen to you.  One minute they're in diapers...next thing you know, they're getting a diploma and leaving home.

Supplies Used:
Patterned Paper:  Fabrications Canvas: Yellow Flower & Floral Garden, MME Miss Caroline - Howdy      Doody "Like" Ledger Paper.
Stickers:  Fabrications Canvas, October Afternoon.  Alphas:  Studio Calico & Jillibean.
Embellishments:  Fabrications Canvas die cuts, Decorative Brads, Stamps & Trinkets.  Lace ribbon - Jolee's Boutique, Other die cuts - October Afternoon, Washi tape - Hambly.
Wood alphabet stamps
Mist - Studio Calico - Water Cooler.
Ink - Tsukineko - VersaFine - Onyx Black.
Typewriter for journaling on white cardstock.
Sewing machine

    Can I start by saying Julie's LO is super, I thought that was a great idea that her Son is holding the picture of himself years ago....genius idea.

    I have only just discovered Teresa on my TV tonight (Ideal World) and her Scrapbook papers/embelishments and stamps are just stunning, cannot wait to order some papers (i am a paper person!!).
