Graduation layouts

Photographs from my daughter's Year 7 graduation in 2012 have been sitting in a packet for a while now, and it's time I got them scrapped!

This layout was inspired by the sketch challenge at Scrap the Girls:

I mostly older stash for this layout, but I also had fun playing with a new stencil.  Santa Claus brought me a heap of stencils, paints and mists for Christmas!   {My Santa shopped HERE}

I also made my own spiral roses:

Teresa Collins Essentials - Chevrons 8"x10" stencil
Making Memories Specialty Glaze - Rose Petal acrylic paint
MAMBI Mixed Media patterned paper
My Minds Eye Lost & Found patterned paper
Junkitz Stickerz alphabets
Prima Rondelle textured canvas alphabets
Prima Zephyr - Wooden Embellishments clock


This layout was inspired by sketch #137 at Sketches in Thyme:

White doiley 
Making Memories Specialty Glaze - Rose Petal acrylic paint
Echo Park Victoria Gardens - Botanical Ballad patterned paper
Gift ribbon - pink & white
Green checked ribbon - RAK from Lizzy Hill
Prima Welcome to Paris textured canvas alphabets
Green Tara 4cm Petals - Pink paper flowers
PortaCraft blossoms - pale pink
Inque Boutique Isn't it Romantic felt shapes
