My path to University was a little different to the traditional – finish school and head straight to tertiary education path. Instead I went overseas for a year and then returned home to work and earn some money and get myself established, whatever that means. So in the end I didn’t actually begin my tertiary education until I was 26. By the time I had finished and made it to graduation I was married and seven weeks pregnant with our first child. I was one of only two people in my course who actually attended the graduation ceremony but nevertheless it was still an event I want to have documented in my scrapbooks. I decided to use some of my professional prints to get them used and out on display even though I think they look a little stiff and kept my embellishing to bare minimum to keep them the focus.
I decided not to put any journaling on these pages because my University does graduation on an epic scale and literally have to use a stadium to host all the thousands of graduates and their families in one event. I have a further two layouts after these in my album that share my thoughts and feelings and hold the graduation memorabilia like my program and graduate seating pass etc.
