My post today serves a double purpose. Not only is my project for day two of the All About Boys blog hop, it is also my design team project for Lasting Memories, where the challenge this week is hidden journaling.

My project is a layout of my grandson, who is a senior this year.  The journaling talks about how happy his mother was this spring when Nick let her pick out new clothes for him instead of his usual bluejeans and t-shirts. His one choice on his own was the hat, which he wears everyday.

Cardstock - Target
Paper - DCWV
Ribbon - my stash
Letters - Thickers
Bling - I-rock gems from Imaginise

My blog candy for one lucky person who comments is a scrapping tool kit. For FIVE extra entries submit a layout to Lasting Memories this week. I'll keep this open until 9 p.m. on Saturday, November 19th (the entry deadline at Lasting Memories.)

Now hop on over to see what the talented Lisa has created to show you.
