I might just scrap the letter I got today.

Last year I started college at age 51! And today I got a letter telling me that I made the Deans list. I am kinda sorta proud of myself lol silly I guess but it has not been easy relearning how to study!

Thank you all so much!

In Shimelles last video she put an 8x10 page protector becide a layout for a full page of journaling, I guess i could do that with the letter and the certificate they sent me. I have never done a layout without a photo but theres a first time for everything I guess.

As an almost 51-year-old who is in college (for a certificate, I'd rather do that than a Masters), I congratulate you! I am not sure if my college puts the certificate students on the Dean's List, but double congrats for that, and I'd be right there with you!

You absolutely should celebrate the moment. I am now in my late 40's and went back to college a couple of years ago (finished this past December). Be proud and show off your accomplishments!

What a great accomplishment!

Add a copy of your transcripts to the layout so you have a record of the classes. Be sure to write the names of the classes because years later the abbreviations might be too vague for you to remember what they actually represent. I found this out the hard way when updating my resume! You can journal about favorite projects, fellow students, professors, tuition costs, and so much more.

Scrap it and show it off!

Congratulations!

That is *definitely* scrap-worthy. I hope you're taking time to document it, at least in part. College years can be so crazy, but taking time to journal about this will be something you will always be grateful you did. Trust me.

Huge congrats ... and good luck with your studies (though it doesn't sound like you need it!)
