Midnight Madness Challenge - MMSC56

Good Afternoon!
Our dear leader at SCH is a design team member for Midnight Madness!!! What an honor! So, Tracy (owner of SCH) challenged our team to use the Graduation set and use the sketch this week from MMC. Here is the sketch:
And here is my entry:

I played with this for hours and hours, I think when I finished there were probably 7 layers. First the background is a photo of part of the UNC campus in Chapel Hill; I duplicated the photo and made it into a sepia and left the colored photo as a layer as well. By using my photo editing program I was able to have the "Graduation" image sit on top with both the colored and sepia images showing in the background. The little diploma is just some white card stock rolled up and edged with SU blue, ribbons were all from my stash and the embellies on the ribbons are fancy-pansy paper clips.

I wanted to show you this inside because it uses another of the images from the Graduation set!

Ok so now I need to get to work on our blog hop image. I love hearing from you as you visit, thanks for stopping in!!
