YEA! Layout

Here in Corning we have a unique opportunity we did not have up North. Here they have YEA! It's Young Entrepreneurs Academy. It's a year long after school class that teaches your middle school student how to start & run their own business. Their motto is to teach a kid how to make a job, not take a job.

It's a boatload of work. Lexi is wrapping up her business plan now and is miserable.

Let's face it, nobody wants to write one of those, but they are very necessary if you want to run your own business.

Part of the class was a recent session that involved five local CEO's that participated in question & answer sessions. I learned LOTS myself! Parents were invited. I managed to sneak a really terrible photo that I converted to black and white as well as adding the text of the event. I figured it worked, even if the photo wasn't all that.

I have a little butterfly on my layout from Renea Bouquets and a little piece of vintage from my haul I blogged about yesterday.

I'm really glad a scrapped a page about YEA! I think Lexi will look back when she's older and remember the things she learned.

Hope your Tuesday was awesome!


  1. This is a lovely page....I REALLY like all the bits on it, especially that bicycle....& the butterfly is yum! And I'm sure 'one day' Lexi will indeed look back on it with errr.....fondness. I wonder what she will end up doing for a job, eh?

  2. Yea, I reckon this will be a wonderful layout to look back on, sounds like a marvellous class for the kids to do.. I hope Lexi makes a million before she is 21!! Fabulous layout..

  3. Wow, what a wonderful idea for the young teens. I am sure she will love the memories she has from this.
    The layout is eye catching. Love all the scraps used, especially that piece of burlap peeking out. Of course you know I LOVE that butterfly.

  4. That is such a great way to use the photograph to your layout advantage and have for a keepsake memory. I really dig that idea!!
    It's all going to be so worth it :)
