Many things have changed over the last two years including the education system. Our son only attended college for one semester then college became virtual. He graduated without a ceremony, his diploma was simply mailed. I wanted to capture the moment because we are so very proud of him and his achievements and we had a photo shoot with his diploma.

Good morning! I am not a chronological scrapbooker. I scrapbook whatever I am inspired to, whenever I am inspired to, so I may scrapbook a photo from when our boys were little or from a couple of years ago when one of them graduated from high school.
