Derek's Graduation Guestbook

A friend of mine here in our little town Julie asked me to make this book.  Her son's name is Derek just like mine.  When we moved here who would have thought there would be two Derek's. then our last names are very similar.  They call this Derek, Big Derek and mine Little Derek.  This past January another Derek moved to town too.  I don't know if they called him medium Derek, LOL.
I guess I will get to the book.  She wanted it to be more of an autograph book.  I just put a lot of blank white pages in the middle.  We did put the Gift/Thank you pages in.  He is headed off to the Army in July.  I wanted to wait till she brought the family picture to add embellishments.  I so love the fall pictures they took of him.  Then like always I finish with a memory pocket at the end.  I do have more pictures at my FB page, Robbin CrazedCrafter.  Thanks Hugs Robbin

Courtney's Graduation Guestbook

There is so much I love about this book.  The colors are her favorite colors and I love them.  She is an outdoor going fishing girl and one of the nicest girls ever.  I have more pages from this book on my FB page Robbin CrazedCrafter.  I thought the birdcage combined with the butterfly is so cute.  I added the 3-D flower from Pro 31 Design.  I used Die-Namic dies from MFT Stamps on her first page.  I think the light brown Recollection bling is perfect for these pages.  The "quilt" page was designed by my friend Thersa.  It is super cute.  I was so excited when I tied that bow perfectly and the small Iamroses flowers and the buttons are perfect with the pictures.  The Family page is the cutest simplest page to make.  The round flower is cute with 3 different circles I wrinkled, edged it with vintage photo ink and the bling is perfect again.  I love this Graphic 45 page.  I have had the Once upon a Springtime page since it came out.  This is the first time I really used it.  It is such a cute page for her to put a picture of her and her man.  I can't wait to add her favorite pictures.  Please send me a friend request at my FB Robbin CrazedCrafter to see the rest of the pages.  Hugs, Robbin

Miranda's Prom Layout

Hi, Bloggers.  Wow has our lives have been crazy.  We made it through Prom & Graduation.  I made 3 guestbooks, this framed layout and 2 wall hangings in the last month.  They all turned out perfect.  This young lady asked me to make this for her.  She brought me her corsage, his flower, the feathers she wore in her hair, the ticket to get in the dance, the drawing an artist drew at after prom and the picture.  I had a hard time working with the feathers.  They didn't want to stay in place while I designed the layout.  I had to add few feathers cuz it was alittle empty and everything else I thought to add looked stupid.  The ticket layer perfect on top.  Her picture fit so nice in the headband.  The boyfriends boutonniere looks perfect with the drawing.  I added black pearls to the bottom left to balance out the dark colors up above.  Her corsage would not fit between the glass.  It looks great on the outside edge.
If you have any questions yell, Hugs Robbin
