This graduation scrapbook layout represents quite a brave move on my part. Up until now this hideous photo of me has been kept firmly under wraps. What was I thinking?! There's a reason photos like this end up in the attic. It's not to save space, I can tell you!

For this layout I wanted a busy background paper to try and deflect attention from the schmuck in the picture. I found the perfect 'Graduation paper' from Paper Pizazz. I liked the effect of a 'downpour' of academic expectation raining down on my totally fashion-resistant hairstyle.




EMBELLISHMENT - AND I WASN'T EVEN WRITING AN ESSAY!

These stick-ons came from Memory Big Ideas, 'Soft Spoke' range. I wanted to create a triumphant 'bottom half' of the layout where in spite of the pressures and anxieties of Final exams (ie the 'top half')- I did actually emerge from higher education with letters after my name (B.R.O.K.E!)


GRADUATE TO USING SKETCH TEMPLATES

I used to spend a lot of time changing my mind about how the final layout should look, which is why I find Jen Gormley's '500 Scrapbooking Sketches' such a useful tool. She's put a great example of what you can achieve with a sketch template on this page about half way down.


FIRST AND LAST DAY IN EDUCATION

This photo of me taken on my first day of school seems a natural moment to revisit, in a kind of 'circle of life' way.

I think I was more stylish in this earlier shot. It went downhill very quickly after that!
