Congrats Journal - Maroon & Gold

Recently we had an Open House celebrating my daughter's graduation from college.  She wanted a book so friends could leave her words of wisdom, so we decorated a My Creations Journal.  

Since Stephens College colors are Maroon and Gold, the polka-dot vellum in the Free To Be Me collection was perfect paired with Ruby cardstock.  The 'congrats' and medallion shapes were cut using the Artiste Cricut cartridge, and the "class of 2014" was stamped using images in the Congrats Graduate stamp set.  A gold Metallic Marker was used to add some color to the edges of the largest medallion and the cardstock behind 'Congrats.'

Proud of her Honors medal for graduating Cum Laude.   

Some of the dance shoes she used during her College performances.   

In celebration of National Scrapbooking Month, Close To My Heart has created the Free To Be Me paper collection, available during May 2014 for only $5, with a $50 qualifying purchase.    

All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).
