MCT-Scrapping The Little Things

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend!!

Today at the My Creative Time blog, it is Scrapping The Little Things.
This is the day that we create a scrapbook page, smash book page or a project life page. 

My daughter is graduating is just a few weeks, so I decided to make a little layout for some of the many pictures that I am sure to be taking that day :)

I based my layout on a sketch found at Sketch Support. You can see the sketch HERE.

I am normally a 12x12 double page scrapbooker, but for this layout I decided to change it up a little bit. I made a 8 x 10 layout. I made it this size so that I could put it into a shadow box and display it. Her school colors are red, white and blue and her gown is black so I stayed with those colors. I kept it pretty simple since the pictures haven't been taken yet. Once the pictures are adhered, I may embellish it just a little more. Honestly, I'm kinda liking the simplicity of it so I may just keep it as is. The banner hanging across the top of my layout came from the Stitched Party Dies. I used the Lowercase Fun Dies for my title and then stamped a grad hat from the Here's Looking At You set and just fussy cut it out and adhered it to the "G".  Isn't that flower cute?? It is from one of Emma's newest dies called Stitched Pretty Flowers & Leaves Dies. My white scallop was made using one of the edges from the Fun Stitched Edges die.  For my little hanging banners at the bottom, I used the banner die from the Vintage Stitched Label Dies. I added a little faux stitching with a black sharpie and doodled just a little bit on the title with a white gel pen. I also added some bling to the scallop, the flower center and the banner at the top. I am so behind on my scrapbooking, but at least I already have a current layout ready to go once the pics are taken and printed :) 

Thanks so much for stopping my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I appreciate it so much!!

Love your LO it did turn out great and what awesome school colors!! I was even thinking because of you being ready ahead of time for pics that for myself since I am primarily a 12 x 12 scrapper too that if I did a make ahead like you did for a shadow box that this 8 x 10 LO could easily be put on other papers for a layered look and still end up being a 12 x 12 as I've never done a make ahead. I hope you'll share when you do get your daughter's pictures as this is such a proud moment for you and a cherished one too and you'll have all on a LO doesn't get any better than this!!
