Graduation Time!!

My cousin's daughter is graduating this year from Alta Loma High School here in sunny So. Cal.! I remember when she was born...WOW...time flies!! Anyways, the challenge this week over at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Graduation themed projects, cards and gifts. I was asked to make a gift and found myself inspired by my beautiful cousin, Destinee. She is so fun, so talented and such a blessing to our family. I know she'll be successful at whatever she does in life!!

I decided to make a card and matching "memories book" for her to put pics in, journal her thoughts and save some memorabilia from her Senior year. These are also her school colors.

Since this was for a girl and the colors are more masculine, I HAD to add cute ribbon and some bling!

Congratulations Destinee!!! I can't wait to see what life has in store for you!!

Ingredients: Pacific Point, Basic Gray and Whisper White Cardstock, Blueberry DSP, Sock Monkey Accessories stamp set, Something to Celebrate Stamp Set, Pacific Point and Black Stazon inks. Simple Numbers and Billboard letters Die Cuts, Big Shot, Basic Gray and Whisper White Satin Ribbon, Whisper White grosgrain and taffeta ribbon, rhinestones, scallop punch, tab punch, curly label punch.

Happy Stamping,
