The Football Banquet..

is tonight! I'm excited for it because.....I can finally get this "scrapbook project" behind me! I have not talked about the scrapbook project prior to this because it was ALL consuming and I'm not really sure how I got roped into it???? Every year the moms of the seniors make this book for the boys as a memento for their senior year of football. Well, lets just say...the project has evolved from a simple 8 1/2 x 11 three ring notebook, put together by pasting some pictures from the computer and printing them on the computer to this full fledged 12x12 scrapbook that had a whole lot of special papers, embellishments, hundreds of photos, etc and then had to go to the printer to finish. Thanks to last years moms for "stepping it up" of course we could not be outdone! LOL...Anyways, I got volunteered to spear head this project and then after meeting with the moms and finding out that no one had really scrapbooked before besides me....I ended up making the whole book. Each of the moms made a page for their son and then I did the rest of the pages. The total project cost just over $1000 and took probably about 40hours to complete. But I'm pretty proud of the finished product. I hope the boys appreciate them!
We made 15 books and each has 66 pages...this is the front of the album
1st page

Random page (California camp)


Last page....
I really was pretty happy to get to do it.(I can say that now that its done) I hope it was everything that the other moms hoped it would be. I'm really not ready for all these "senior" moments coming up in Hayden's life cuz I'm just not ready to let him go....but that is another post for another day....
