Graduate!

TGIF!! My first graders walked (well.. ran.. lol) through the doors on Wednesday and since then it's been a three day whirlwind! I'm SO exhausted, but it's been a great first week back to school. I've got a wonderful class this year and my student teacher and I are finding our rhythm :)

I was so happy to get a chance to make a layout tonight. And since I was school mode, I wanted to play with my new Basic Grey "Oxford" collection.

I used the latest Sketchy Thursday sketch (I mirrored it, though):


I scrapbooked my "baby" brother's high school graduation photo, taken earlier this summer.


Plaid and polka dots? I'm getting brave! It must be sleep deprivation. But I think I like it ;)

I tried to make a ribbon loop, but it kept fraying when I put the brads through, so I just used some patterned paper scraps...I think I like that look better lol. Funny how those things work out. And who doesn't love Basic Grey's glazed brads? Addicting!


I used a 12"x1" strip of paper to make the "banner" at the bottom in place of the border. I cut my title on my cricut.


I embellished the other side of the banner with the layered stickers ("pops") from the same collection. Love the plaid apple!!!



Thank so much for stopping by today. Hope you had a great week! :)
