Here is another Grad book I am making for a girl I work with. 
 Her Grandson is graduating from grade 8.

I have tried to do the school colours that she told me. 
I wish I could find some graduation papers, but I am limited on what Michael's has.

The ribbon on the pic below isn't glued down
 so that way the picture can slide underneath it.


I made this grad book for my son who is graduating Gr 8.
 He will be off to highschool next yr.
This will be a big jump as he has been in a school of approx 140 kids,
and will now go to a high school that has over 1000 students

These 2 pages are for wallet size pics of his whole class
There is only a total of 14 of them so they will fit on here.
I have decided that seeings it is a book for him his picture will not be on it. 
He is already on the front of the album.

For the next bunch of pages I just need to wait until grad at the end of just for the pictures.
I know I will need a few more pages for it also as these 4 that are left I am sure will not be enough

I used thin cardboard as the pages and covered them with paper.
I am so loving my cricut as it cuts a multitude of things
All the photo mats will fit a 4x6 photo. 
 I plan to put the pics on then add some more embellishments to the pages.

The file for this album can be found at:
in the Graduation Day Kit.
I am loving all the wonderful kits I have gotten from this place.
3 split rings found at your local stationary/office supply shop were used to put it together
