The Graduate

My eldest son graduated from Reading University this year - he achieved a first in his Primary Education degree, he also received a first for his dissertation and was marked as outstanding for his school placement, we are very proud of him.

He has almost completed his first term teaching and I have eventually managed to create a layout using a photograph of him just before he handed in his dissertation along with one of the photographs from his graduation ceremony in July.


I decided to print the photographs in black and white, it was so sunny (also very hot) on the day and the photographs are all very bright which made it difficult to find papers to go with them - I'm pleased to say he liked the end result.

Thank you for popping in today, your company is much appreciated - please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.
