Good Luck Graduate Layout

To enter my Blogaversary Giveaway, please click here.

Here is another layout I created to scrapbook pictures of my son's 8th grade graduation.  I used the Happy Graduation Seasonal cartridge for the title and the Recess Lite cartridge for all of the other die cuts.
The background paper is from the DCWV High School stack and it seemed to be the perfect paper for this layout.
The title did not have a shadow on the cartridge so I created my own shadow by cutting the title out twice in different colored card stock and off setting the layers.
Once again I used my white gel pen to add lots of doodling and stitching to the layout.
The tassels were created with Blue Berry Trendy Twine and attached with a brad at the center of the graduation cap.  A little bit of glue helped to hold the tassel in place.  I also outlined the bow on top of the diploma with the twine and added a button to the center.  The diploma was embossed with the Sizzix Diamonds embossing folder.
I created a couple of hand cut flags to add sentiments to each of the pages.  The sentiments are from the Scrappy Moms "Mini Messages" stamp set.
For the graduate, I used my Gypsy to hide the facial features and instead used my Peachy Keen "Wide Eyed Kids" stamps.  I also added a little bit of chalk to the cheeks and a couple of brads to his graduation gown.
