Congratuations Graduation Layout

 I love doing Challenges! It is keeping me focused and getting photos into the scrapbook instead of them laying around for years. And it makes me work out of my comfort zone so I am learning new things. This is the first time I used my Spellbinders Nested Pennants. I have to be honest when I bought them I thought, "I will never use these," but I had an inkling they would become popular and  sure enough they did!


Paper: PAP Westfield Logo, Scrappim' Sports Gold Green Stripes, Laserline Westfield Shamrocks (Thus paper was all purchased 3 years ago when our Local Scrapbook Store went out of business. I am sooo glad I had the foresight to stock up at the time, because we only have chain stores (Hobby Lobby, Achievers, and Micheal's) and none of them carry Westfield logo stuff.

Dies: Spellbinders Nested Pennants, Large Oval, Label 1
Flowers: Petaloo and Doodlebug
Embellishments: Dress it Up Shamrocks, buttons from my stash
Floss and Twine :We R Memories Sew Easy Orange, Really Reasonable Ribbon Green and White Twine
Rub-Ons: Scrappin' Sports Graduation

This Challenge is sponsored by Stuck On U Sketches. Be sure to check them out. They also do tutorials and I have learned some new tricks on this site.

 I reversed the sketch to work with the paper. Here's the sketch:

Off to get my homework done for Summer Card Camp 2011. Another activity that is forcing me out of my comfort zone. No one can accuse me of being in a rut! LOL
