Loving making scrapbook layouts just for fun right now, digging out older items from my stash to use on my pages. So seeing as I had nothing to do this evening, I thought I'd scrap these Instagram pictures my dad took of me at my graduation a couple of weeks ago.
The supplies: cardstock, foam letter stickers—American Crafts; patterned paper—Studio Calico, Pebbles Inc., American Crafts; journaling cards—Studio Calico, October Afternoon; camera sticker, apple die-cut, bracket die-cut—October Afternoon; border sticker, apple sticker, chipboard flowers—Sassafras; wooden letters—Making Memories; punch—Fiskars; font—Little Days
The journalling: "It wasn't as fancy or even as special, but I did get to wear a mortarboard this time!"
The story: My graduation this year was my second one so far. I say so far because I will be having another one in March. It's a very long story but basically when you do your degree at Cambridge, you automatically get an MA a few years later...I think it's to do with the amount of work that you have to do when you're there compared to at other unis. (E.g. one or two essays a week vs one or two essays a term.) Anyway, my graduation this year was for my PGCE (teacher training) and while it was still a very proud moment for me, it was nowhere near as grand, fancy or special as the day I graduated from Cambridge. BUT...I did get to wear a motarboard this time, which I was VERY excited about and wanted to document this little piece of information!! And I didn't have to wear a fur hood either, just a cloth one. I almost melted last time in my fur hood!!
I'm all for using what you've got when it comes to scrapbooking...on this layout, I wanted to use up those fab wooden Making Memories letters but didn't have the whole alphabet so I just substituted the missing letters for Thickers. I'm a little annoyed there wasn't enough room for the whole alphabet on the page, but I guess that's just the slight OCD in me. I'll get over it. HAHA.
Have a lovely weekend!
