Tutorial: Preschool Graduation Scrapbook Layout

My youngest is graduating from preschool next week and I'm both excited and sad. I'm looking forward to summer break, but we're saying goodbye to one of our favorite teachers. Here's a scrapbook layout featuring that favorite teacher at last year's preschool graduation:

"Last Day" 8.5x11 Scrapbook Layout

Glue Dots® (Glue Lines, Ultra Thin, Pop Up)
cardstock (kraft, red, yellow, black, white)
edge distresser
black acrylic paint
black ink (StazOn)
apple stamp
white letter stickers (American Crafts Thickers)
black marker
paper trimmer
one photo

1. Cut a large half circle out of white cardstock and attach to kraft cardstock using Glue Dots Glue Lines®.

2. Distress and paint the edges of the layout. Set aside to dry.

3. Distress the edges of the photo, mat onto black cardstock and use Ultra Thin Glue Dots® to attach to the layout.

4. Stamp ten apples onto red cardstock, cut out and use Pop Up Glue Dots® to attach them to the border of the half circle.

5. Cut six 3 x 1/2" strips of red, blue and yellow cardstock (two for each color) and use black marker to create a border along the edges of each. Adhere three strips to the top of the layout and three to the bottom using Ultra Thin Glue Dots®.

6. Adhere letter stickers to the layout to create a title.

7. Add journaling using a black marker.
