Graduation Album - May 30, 2010

I decided to make my niece a graduation album at the very last minute - 3 days before graduation :O, and in the end with very little time to spare, I ended up getting it done in 3 hours the night before her graduation!!! If I had a little more time I would have added a bit more but I'm happy with the way it turned out. My niece loved it too.
I matched the colors of the pages to her dress and the second and third page matched the colors of her cap & gown. In a few weeks, we're going to get together and I'm going to help her add her photos to the album.
Thanks Wendy for the idea of the Autograph pages. I actually made two of them which some family and friends wrote messages to her. I think it's a great idea and keepsake for her to look back on in the years ahead!
