My project is two (2) more pages of a graduation lay-out for my niece, Kristin, who just graduated from high-school. Now, comes the challenge making a lay-out for a graduation using Mickey and friends.. Kristin is a “Make-a-Wish” recipient that had the wish for a Disney cruise and my sister had been employed at a Disney store …. Now, this truly a Disney family!!!

First, I would love to introduce you to my niece Kristin, 2012 Graduate of South Park High School

This is the first of my two (2) lay-outs for you today. Minnie is cut at 6.25-inches using the Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge. 

The year is cut using Tear Drop Cricut Cartridge. 

The mortarboard hat is cut using Everyday Paper Dolls with a pearl bling for the tassel.

Don't you just love the star photo mat which is Designs on Cloud 9 Photo Mat Fun

The total finished project for first page - 

Now, for the second page:

Now, I have to tell you that I was inspired and "scraplifted" with permission from Lucy Kelleher but made it into a motarboard with the ears!

Kristin's name is cut using Tear Drop Cricut Cartridge

Pat Catan's has the local schools both names and logo's in their crafting paper - saw it and I knew I just had to have it!!

Again, I used the Designs on Cloud 9 Photo Mat Fun for Kristin's pictures

Mickey and Friends Cricut Cartridge
Everyday Paper Dolls Cricut Cartridge for the mortar boards
Tear Drop Cricut Cartridge for the “Congrats”
