I have always wanted to have my pictures of me graduating in a layout. The first picture is one taken by my father with his Polaroid camera. It is of me in my kindergarten cap and gown. The next picture is of the posed graduation picture taken at school. I don't think I have one of me in my cap and gown. The third picture is of my college graduation. I didn't immediately go to college out of high school so this picture is more poignant since I didn't go to college until I was in my 30's and it took about a decade for me to get my degree. Part of that time I was taking sign language prep classes for the degree I thought I wanted but sort of failed out of the program so I switched gears and stayed with a focus in deafness but a totally different field!
I fussy cut the flowers from the 12 x 12 paper. The yellow embossed paper with the Graduation words on it was white but I inked it with chalk pigment ink to match the other elements on the page.
