It is that time of year....graduation time. Although my kids aren't even close to graduating (Thank God), each spring I find myself creating somebody's graduation announcments. This year I created these for our neighbor Brock. I did not take the photographs but I thought they were wonderful and was excited to work with them. As always my clean, graphic style emerged and I wanted Brock's photos to steal the show.
A few years ago, I created this announcement for Brock's sister Paige and they wanted them to be similar.
This was the inside spread and opened wide.
I love graduation time because everybody seems to pull out the old photos and reflect on how much the individual has grown. I recognize for some people that aspect of graduation times seems incredibly stressful as they try to pool 18 years of photos into meaningful keepsakes. I guess as an ongoing memory-keeper, I am just so incredibly thankful that I find so much joy in continous documentation of our lives. Once our kids are in bed, it almost feels like I get to relive these moments as I create their pages and I find so much fulfillment in documenting our journey.
