Mathew getting his kindergarten diploma

These 2 layouts are of my son getting his kindergarten diploma. I did these layouts for the chipboard challenge over at Treasured Scrapbooking. I have never really used chipboard before. at least not to what I could say I really liked the end result of the layout. However, this layout I think turned out great. I used chipboard to accent Mathew getting his diploma also to accentuate his name. I used a scalloped chipboard boarder and my new glimmer glam, just out of the postal box, alog with distress rock candy. I finally added a star ribbon pull along with ribbon and two other chipboard stars. The chipboard stars were colored using distress antique brone and brass crackle paint. I then took distress rock candy and went over the top of them to crack them further. The ribbon is a piece from my stash. The papers are basic grey recess collection. Hugs Tracy

Mathew on his way to his kindergarten graduation

This is a layout of my son at his kindergarten graduation. I used Basic Grey Recess paper and outlined the flourish on the side with Broken China distress stickles. I added flourish sticker and a rub on from my stash. I also used the Tim Holtz time mask and went over the mask with Broken China. I know this challenge is to combine your old stash with the new. I realize this paper is somewhat old but it is new to me. The mask I just bought on sale at a local scrapbooking store. The stickles and distress ink are old as well as the sticker. The crown rub on is new. I had a lot of fun making this layout Hugs tacy
