Grad 2012

I couldn't wait to scrap these photos of my son and some friends from their Grade 7 grad last June.  I have know these two beautiful girls since Kindergarten and they are such lovely young ladies.  Rhys looked so handsome in his black shirt and tie, so grown up too.  It was an amazing day!


I used the Dear Lizzy Fifth and Frolic collection which I fell in love with.  I fussy cut the flowers and added them diagonally across the layout using foam tape to pop some of them up for dimension.

 
 
I added the matching epoxy buttons to the centre of a few of the flowers and the cute camera chipboard.
 

Even though my son is in the photo I really wanted to use these sparkly silver Thickers from American Crafts, so pretty.
 

Across the other diagonal I cut out and added some Polaroid pieces from patterned paper and the chipboard.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by.
