A scrapbook page!!

Hello there bloggers!!

Today I am sharing a traditional page that I have done to tick a few boxes.
First box - scrap a page from my niece's year 7 graduation (December 2011)
Second box - Use some of Angie's new digi stamps (as soon as I saw these I KNEW I was going to tick at least one thing off my very very long to do list!)
Third box - I am entering this into a sketch challenge over at Sassy Scrappers - my 1st ever entry into a scrap challenge so please don't be too harsh on me!!

First up here is the sketch

And you can buy Angie's new digi stamps here.

Now onto the page :D

I have used an Amy Tan paper for the background (yellow, chevron, can't go wrong!!) and some of my pieces of bazzill. I have printed Angie's images onto Stampin Up Crumb Cake card stock and inked all the edges with distress stain.  That is a Studio Calico chevron mask I have used and some gorgeous Heidi Swapp mustard colour shine on the back ground also borrowed this technique and coloured the title "grad" with colour shines and a paint brush.

And here is the result

As always, thank you for stopping by, I hope you like what you saw!!
