The process:

This came together really quickly. I matched the background page to the photo based on the blue and the streamer-ish look of the beaded strands. I matted the photo on some papers I've been hoarding. For a bit of added... flavor?... I threw in a bit of cereal bag liner that I cut up (I saved the box, too, for chipboard).

It took several tries to get the title letters right. The first set of chipboard that I used was too thick even for my deep cut blade. So, I grabbed the backing chipboard I'd saved from a pad of paper I bought months ago, and used that instead. With it all cut out, I added clear gesso, inked the letters a bit, and added clear embossing powder. They're glued down to glitter paper with Tombow Mono Multi glue.

While the Cricut was running, I pulled out the Prizm and diecut some arrows from the Ornate Arrows pack. When I had everything secured, I added some bling I bought at Dollar Tree, and some journaling and scribbly outlining with a white Gelly Roll pen.

About the picture:
I've made a promise to myself that I will scrapbook at least one event per month for 2017. I was at a loss for what to scrapbook for March, because there's just not a lot going on this month.

When I got home yesterday, I found my Beta Gamma Sigma (it's like Phi Beta Kappa for business students) honor cords in the mailbox. I was pleased, but not inspired, until I realized the box containing my cap and gown were on the doorstep. Then, I knew what I would scrap for March.
