Guest Designer for Scrapbooker's Paradise!

Since I was so lucky as to win the challenge last week, I also get to be the Guest Designer for Scrapbooker's Paradise this week! How exciting is that?!! This week, the challenge is:
Please join the Scrapbooker's Paradise blog to play!

For my Guest Designer project I wasn't sure at first what to do... Graduation isn't something I normally have a card to make for, but after thinking a bit I decided I really wanted to make a scrapbook page that I could frame for my 5 year old.  This is her last year in Preschool and she'll be starting Kindergarten in the fall. 

I found a really cute digi stamp by Heather Ellis who designs Pure Innocence stamps and sells them on Etsy for only $1.70 CAD!  For that price you can get tons of cute images to color! She sells them as a JPEG and I simply open them in my word processing program and resize them as desired. I also found a graduation cap at Birds Cards website, where there are lots of other free digi images and sentiments. I colored both images with Prismacolor markers and added a few Stickles.

The printed paper is by Cosmo Cricket - I just love their papers! and I used my Spellbinders banner dies, which I distressed around the edges and popped up with foam dots.  I also printed out part of a Dr. Seuss poem "Oh the places you'll go", as well as my titles, which I framed with cardstock, and, of course, I added some Distress Inks here and there!

This was a fun challenge! Hope you will play along too :)
