I got a little carried away with this upcoming graduation for my Grand Neice. School colors are Blue and White.

So here are all the details below.
First up: 2013 Glasses SVG cut file is from My Scrap Chick found here.
The Card: Love it!!!  Graduation Girl is from SVG Cutting. Collection is called The Grad found here. Congrats shaped card is from DC9 (Designs on Cloud 9) found here. Paper used is from Scrapbook Customs Graduation Word Collage #92599. The stars are punched using Recollection Silver Glitter paper.
Here's a closer look at the paper piecing of the Grad: Stampin-Up Brilliant Blue card stock used, Recollections White, Recollection Silver Glitter paper, Wassau Metallic Black, Wassau Metallic Blue, Neenah White.......yes, Neenah white used to cute the girl, then Copics color E21, R20 - brilliant, eh?

Now the mini book: OMG - YES, it is one of those RETIRED BIDDY BOOKS Stampin-Up used to carry. They NO longer have them and I have been sparingly using them for special occasions.
