High School Graduation (Orange Paperie September Challenge0

Hello All, September has been  a busy month. With being on holidays & everything these is the first layout for me in September.

The Challenge - A mood board. This is the first time I have attempted to gain inspiration from a mood board.

What I liked was the way the greens looked amongst the greys & whites on the Paris streets so I wanted to make a layout using those colours.


 This is Me & my Wife at her High School Graduation back in 1994. Have used PP from Kaisercraft After Five Collection & Secret Admirer. Collectables from Secret Admirer. Stamps are also Kaiser.

Word strips saying High School Graduation is PP that I cut to size, then ran through a Dymo 3D labeller & then went over the embossed lettering with a Sharpie.

Thanks for having a look, Hope you like my page.
