As many of you know, I'm participating (yet again!) in Scrappin' 'n' Chattin's 52 Week Layout Challenge.  The past two years I haven't made it past halfway, so I'm hoping to get all fifty-two weeks in this year!  I'm normally scrambling to get my layout done on Friday when I get home from school (since it's due by midnight on Fridays), but I actually got myself together and got it done a day early this week.

The past three years I taught at a private, all-boys military boarding school in Carlsbad, California, and was the advisor for the Harvard Model Congress team.  My co-advisor, Ethan, was the history department chairperson and was the PERFECT person to take with me!  We worked very well together, had a wonderful rapport with the boys, and had a GREAT time in Boston!  I am definitely going to miss going to Boston with them this year, but I know Ethan will do a WONDERFUL job as the new advisor.

I followed Sketch #100 at Sketches in Thyme.
Since I was only using a few pictures, I used the left side of the two-page sketch.

This week's challenge at Lasting Memories Layout Challenges is "Something Old, Something New."  I'm entering this layout over there, too, since it's about the "old" advisor (me) and the new advisor (Ethan).

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll be back next week, when I'll have another layout and card for you.  We're off to the monster truck show in Little Rock on Saturday as part of the boys' Christmas present.  Have a great weekend, and happy scrapping!

Your layout is beautiful! I couldn't read what it was about because the pink on the yellow background is kind of hard to read. Awesome project! Thanks for joining us at Lasting Memories! xoxo Charity LMDT
