Congratulations on your Graduation

My eldest son's girlfriend graduated with a first class business degree at Reading University earlier in the week so I decided to create this explosion box to put her gift in.  It is actually black, I don't know why it is showing up as Navy Blue in the photographs!

My inspiration came from Samantha Clayton you can find the box that she created on her blog Mixed Up Craft.

The papers are from the Kaisercraft Indigo Skies paper pad, I chose these papers because at Reading University they have this shade of blue on their gowns.

The stamps are all from the JustRite Stacking Sentiments collection and the numbers are from the Crafter's Companion Die'sire Classiques 1" Number Dies.

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