Celebrating History

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Why has it taken me months to put such a simple LO together, I started on this LO for Black History Month and just never completed it.  This LO is one that I completed last night as  Tiare hosted and scrapbooked  live on Spreecast.  We had lots of fun chatting, putting our LOs together and just hanging out.  She provided us with a sketch and page kit list for inspiration, you can see her post on her blog.

I still need to add the journaling on this LO as I need to confirm the actual date with DH.  This LO includes pictures of my DH when he met Steve Pemberton author of A Chance in the World.  Pemberton came to the University of Mary Washington to speak as part of their Black History Celebration.   He will also be the keynote speaker for their undergraduate commencement next week.   Pemberton penned his life story  as a broken boy, his desire to establish his identity and how it shaped him as a man.  My husband also learned that he and Pemberton are members of the same fraternity.  It is a good read and of course DH had him to sign a copy of his book for our daughter.
