I'm attending a few Graduations this month! I have already blogged this card I made for my niece who just graduated with a double degree at Melbourne University (Bachelor of Science and Diploma in Language)! It certainly brought back memories as I graduated with the same colour for BSc Hons in 1981 from the same University!! The graduation ceremony is still held in Wilson Hall 32 years later! Oh my goodness, how time flies!!

I made two more graduation cards, the first with Retro sketch #75 for Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge - Sheer and Clear. It's the first time that I've inked up the newly arrived stampset from Paper Smooches. I can see more cards coming from this stampset in the future!

This second card was made a while ago for a publication submission but didn't make it. This is made with Fancy Pants Park Bench which gives it a bit of elegance to the card. Two quite completely different cards from two stamp sets!

Here are a couple of photos from my niece's graduation at Melbourne University. Aunty Cecilia was the official photographer!
