Extra Help Scrapbook Page for Luke

So the other day, I took the kids to the doc to get routine forms filled out for school. Of course they insisted upon a physical and identified with the eye chart the possibility that Luke needed glasses.

So, off to the eye doc we go. I have decided to take stock out in Empire Vision due to the massive amounts I spend there monthly. Poor kids get their eye issues from me, sigh!

Anyhow, I had saved this paper from Luke's folder at the end of school. He had been working on his handwriting all last year and I thought this was a great example of how far he had come.

Hopefully with new eye balls on his face, he'll be even more scholarly this next school year!

So, I wanted to combine his school paper with a photo of his new glasses in a scrapbook page!

Here is a close up of something on this page that is very special to me (besides my SON)!

Check out that card my friend Lisa at You Made Me Ink made!! I spotted it on her blog and offered to buy it. She has her stuff in a real life store, so I was hoping I could catch it before it sold. She sent it to me!!! CHECK out those clouds of hers!!!

Of course, I can't SEND this card to anyone it's mine mine mine.

I opted to save it forever on a page. There is some hidden journaling under the flap, but when I asked Luke if I could share it, he told me it was private. So, I will respect his wishes.

AND, hidden up there in the corner, a few roses from Lizzy Hill another friend/scrapper rock star!!!

And just a quick shout out to Natalie at One Scrappy Doctor who uses a lot of her children's art work on her pages. I was thinking about that when I saved this paper!

Have a great Tuesday!
