No More School Bus! BBTB2 Challenge

Hello my crafty friends, I am off enjoying our vacation so I hope the posts that I have scheduled post without any problems!  It's Monday and while I'm enjoying a fish fry in Myrtle Beach, SC you get to look at my post. lol  Since it is Monday, you know that means it's time for a new challenge at BBTB2. Our theme for this week is to use a school bus. Well I am slowly getting on the band wagon (I'm always slow about jumping on band wagons!) and getting into Project Life. Not as it is intended but as a way to help me catch up on all my photos.  So I did a PL page for this challenge.  My school bus came from Doodlecharms, and my "no" symbol came from Going Places. My journaling spots are cut using a My Creative Time die which you can find here and stamped with the matching stamps from My Creative Time and you can find those here. My youngest son got his permit in Jan. of 2012, then got his license in Sept of 2012 and his Jeep in Aug. of 2012 and his first job in April of 2012. A big year for him!! The biggest thrill for him was not to have to ride on the bus anymore!!! He was always first on and last off so that made for a long, long ride for him. As soon as he had that license in hand, he was driving to school! lol Now he is getting ready to drive again this year, his senior year. Where did the time go?!! How did my baby, son number 6 grow up so fast?!!! I can't believe that we will soon be empty nester. I'm so not ready but yet I am. Does that make sense?!! lol Well let me keep this moving. I hope that you will check out what inspiration  my design team sisters have for you, I promise you won't be disappointed!!! Then think about getting crafty with us by linking up your school bus project! You know we love when you get crafty with us!!






I am linking this layout up with Craftin Desert Diva's Back to School linking party.

I love allthe pics! Wow your baby had quite a year. We had empty nest for about a year until the youngest came back. It was a shock at first. By the time we got used to it, he moved back in, lol. Our door is always open. I love your layout and that cute little bus.

A lot of firsts for your "baby." Which means a lot of firsts for mom. This layout is perfect. Tells a wonderful story.

What a memory you have made for #6. In years to come, this is going to be a real treasure for him to recall, and know that his Mama took the time to make this very special layout for him. Very moving & TFS
