Graduated Graduation

When I first saw CASology's keyword I thought it was a 'sit it out' week. My initial thought on the word was 'colour graduation', and as you can see I've worked with that as well, inspired by 'Sunset' (fab colours like this last night) over at  Less is More! I decided to put a 'girly' spin on the theme, and use a crown instead of a mortar board (which I haven't got!).

The layout at Tuesday Morning made me think of school banners, a la Hogwarts, put together with everything else bingo - a plan

Sweet Stampin was Old and New this week - this brayering technique over versamark is probably one of the first things I saw demonstrated by Barbara Gray, and the stamps (Word Chains and Postage Stamp set) are some of my most recently acquired.
