Grad, First Page

 My first scrapbook page with pictures from Grad :) A lot of the items on this page are found, or just completely made by me. The pink transparency in the middle and the patterned circle paper inspired this layout, and Im pretty happy with how this one turned out. That has to be the most expensive paper I've ever bought (the circle patterned paper) It was like $2 or something, but I usually just bypass the expensive stuff and go for the cheap. But this paper caught my eye, and I HAD to take it home.
 I found the blue flower petals on the floor of home sense, I actually found a lot of flower petals on the floor :) so since the lady was gonna sweep them up anyways and discard them, I took them home. The paper circle in the centre is from the "Me and My Big Ideas Black and White Free Spirit paper pad, which I bought from Winners for CHEAP. The tan crumpled flower thing is made from tissue paper that they packaged my purchase from Aerie in.
 The pink transparency is from the packaging of the circle cutter I bought from EK success. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to use it in a layout. The purple vellum is embossed in a Cuttlebug Embossing folder (and since I dont have a Cuttle bug machine, i used a rolling pin and a hammer :D So much cheaper but required a little bit of extra work and noise). The ribbon was ruffled by yours truly and was a bit of a pain haha.
 I just LOVE that circle paper :) The flower is A Prima Calypso flower, and the Alphabet stickers are the Recollections Brand from Michaels. I bought all of them yesterday for 40% off :) I just love sales haha.
The lace doily is actually off of my table at grad. I took it home, cut it into triangles and distressed it with some tan ink. Then threaded some red thread through the top and made a banner.

Hope you like this one, I was so into it while making it that its probably the fastest layout that I have ever made. Grad was a blast by the way, and my mom surprised us with a LIMO :D It was fabulous.

 My Junior Achievement company Mugshot was an amazing experience this year.  We ended up being one of (or THE) top company this year, and won some awesome awards like the Junior Achievement Best Company Pitch Award, which is what this picture is from.

The grass is nice and green. the trees finally have leaves and the snow is finally all gone. but it is kind of windy, you should have seen our commencements, when everyone threw up their hats, they all blew completely across the field. It was so funny, i really hope someone got a video. The grad banquet is tonight and boy am i excited :)

 One of my moms friends dog just died, so my mom asked me to make a scrapbook page to put in a frame  to send to her. I found a page that I really like on two peas, and i used the layout as a basis of this one.
 a rolled fabric flower, a butterfly cut out of a piece of paper and raised to make a shadow and a ruffled strip of ribbon.
 a tissue paper flower in the top corner, the letters TESA stamped then cut out
a stamped cornflower silhouette and some flowers
The writing around it says: "If there is a heaven, it is certain our animals are to be there, Their lives become so intertwined with out own that it would take more than an archangel to detangle them."

Open House!

 A scrapbook page for Open house. I've had the orange paper forever, and have just waited for an opportunity to use it. I like this page, but I'm kind of unsure about it at the same time.
 Closeups of the parts in the "grid style" layout. This is the bottom right square (my friend doing an arial spin for the dance part during the rehearsal)
Bottom left corner, my two best friends fooling around with some ribbons from a ukrainian dancing headpiece.
 My friend in the middle and the two in the top wearing Ukrainian dancing headpieces.
...yeah i guess its kind of obvious most of my friends ukrainian dance, haha.

the Journaling says: Open house this year was the best one ever! I made the promo poster again, so everyone saw my smiling face as soon as they walked in. We also all stayed after school and had a total blast just being silly. I took maybe 200+ pictures of the Ukie dancers during practice, and millions more of us later.
