1st class honours degree

Sorry about the quality of the photo - I always get round to photographing my projects in the evening and its so difficult to get it right, when I used a flash it just washed out the detail. It can't wait until tomorrow as I want to get this in the post. My niece has just been awarded a first in her Forensic Science degree. She is absolutely thrilled and we are all so proud of her. She went to university shortly after her father died and she has shown such determination to succeed through a very difficult time in her life. I know my brother would be soooo proud of his little girl. She has now decided to follow in my footsteps and become a Chemistry teacher and embarks on her PGCE in September. I cut the sentiment, mortar board and scroll using the Wild card Cricut cartridge. The backing paper is punched with a Martha Stewart punch around the page punches and the flower is from the Magnolia range.

Entering this for Stampalot Challenge- Anything goes

Hope your having a lovely evening.
