From the PI Crop

Over my birthday weekend, Paper Issues had an online Crop -- lots of fun challenges.  We're going through stuff in the garage and I pulled out a whole bunch of old photos.  Fun, fun, scrapping military and my babies :-)   Here's what I got accomplished this weekend:
Forgot to include in last post:  From a sketch at PI

                                                   from a sketch at Let's Scrap

I usually don't post photos of kids not my own -- but these are 32 years old, so the "kids" are close to 40 now.  From my preschool-teaching days.

After Bob died, the Merced Board of Supervisors closed a meeting in his memory and recognized their mourning his death.  I'll put this in a page protector so that the cover is over the outside, so it can be raised to read the resolution.  And I need to dig up a photo of the folks from their 50th.

And did I mention these count for Calvin Ball too?  I was on the leaderboard for Week 2!  Woo Hoo!

Calvin Ball Week 2, part 2

I turned in my points for Week 2 last night -- and today I'm number 9 on the Leader Board -- woo hoo!  Paper Issues is having a crop this weekend and it's my birthday, so I'm scrapping.

Here's two layouts I finished on Friday (last day of Week 2) :

Both are from 1984 -- David graduated Boot Camp in May '84, we spent 16 weeks in Memphis, then back home to CA for two weeks of school.  From there it was three years at Quantico, VA.
