Graduation Day

 Hello, My Grafico friends.Thank you for participating in our last challenge: Father's Day.  We are now ready for a new challenge: GRADUATION!!
It's  that time of the year for Graduations: college, high school, pre school etc. I have several on my list to make cards for too! The following My Grafico set might make it a little easier for you to complete your cards and/or scrapbook pages.

Challenge #130 is Graduation!
This is a fun set from Cupcake Cutiees 
Our Design Team has some marvelous paper projects to inspire you. Just click Here to check them out. 
This week I just had to try making a scrapbook page for a dear friend. I did have a little guidance but think that it looks just like I imagined it.
In the upper right is the sentiment from the featured set: "Graduation Day." The background paper is from the featured  My Grafico set from last week: 

I could have added more embellishment but I wanted this to be simple so that the picture was the focus element in this page design. Once I had the picture and the background paper, it was so simple to design the page. I just moved the elements around until they were pleasing to me. (I have to admit that I did have some anxiety  but a friend walked me through it. You might just see more scrapbook pages in the near future:)

Materials Used:
My Grafico: Sentiment & background script DP
Michael's: Cardstock, ribbon, polka dot DP, border embellishment
Computer Generated: 2012
Clip Art: Circle with RIT- copied from the RIT website
Jelly roll pen: orange tassel on top graduation hat

I am so glad that you stopped for a visit. I hope that I have inspired you to make a graduation card for someone special and/or a graduation scrapbook page. I hope that you will take a moment and leave a comment, I really do love reading your thoughts. Please feel free to follow this blog, if you like what you see.
I have Birthday Candy!!
