Destination College

Katie wanted to start a scrapbook of some  of the photos from times with her friends.  She used the sketch at My Scraps & More Sketch blog, turned it on it's side and scrapped a photo from school.  The light is horrible tonight, I'll take another photo tomorrow.  Great job Katie, I'm so proud of you! 

 Took another photo, so much better in the natural lighting.
