Happy May to you! I'm super excited to show you my project for today's blog hop. Moxxie's 'Graduation Day" collection gave me the perfect papers to scrap my high school graduation photos. Now I have to say -- these pictures are not my favorites, but they are the only photos that I have.  

Some florals help soften the black, grey and white color scheme.

A bit of babies breath and bling...  I softly inked the florals.

This collection is so elegant and full of very inspiring quotes in sticker and die cut form.  I wanted to show that even with a bold color combination like this, you can create a soft and pretty page.  Later this Spring I get to scrap our son's preschool graduation and this collection will be just perfect!

Don't be afraid to alter your patterned paper with a bit of ink or to cut apart your bling to work it into your design.  Here I have cut apart my bling and tucked it in around my design in 4 places.
