Birth of New Beginnings at the Path of Positivity

Welcome to the midway point of March's challenge at the Path of Positivity Challenge Blog. The challenges have changed to Anything Goes, but an optional theme is also offered. The optional theme this month is the Birth of New Beginnings. 
Graduation is the birth of new beginnings for students on their way to careers for which they've studied for the last four to eight years. It's also the beginning of a different kind of parenting as their child matures, moves away, marries and has kids of his or her own. Or chooses one of many other paths. Graduation isn't the end of anything, especially learning. 
I created this scrapbook page for my best friend, whom I coincidentally met while in college myself. Our kids grew up together, our families went on road trips together, and I even have a video somewhere of the two of them dressing up and saying they were getting married. She doesn't scrapbook, so when he graduated with honors from one of the most prestigious universities in Chicagoland, I had to preserve that memory for him and for her!
So, the challenge has two sponsors, Limited Runs
and Kitten Scraps
I used several papers and elements from Kitten Scraps:
Graduation Day Clipart #4,5,7,8,9
 Winter's Playground Paper Add-On Patterned Paper 67
November Thank You Boy Paper 2
Sunny Fish Fun Raffia 13
Now on to the good stuff! 
SPONSOR & PRIZE INFORMATION: 
  • A $20.00 gift certificate from Kitten Scraps, one of our guest sponsors this month, for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch. In order to have a chance to win this prize, be sure to explore this idea of the Birth of New Beginnings.*
  • A $10.00 gift certificate from Limited Runs, one of our guest sponsors this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all entrants. You need only create a project that is positive or uplifting.
  • One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
*If you do follow the optional theme: be sure to add FT after your name and leave a comment to let us know how your project relates to the theme if it's not easily apparent.

Pat, this layout is amazing! You must be so proud of this young man and his accomplishments. It is so wonderful to have such close friends and share in their lives. I'm sure the family loved the scrapbook!
