A Perfect Day - A Scrapbook Page

Hello Everyone,

Today I have another scrapbook LO for your viewing. I'm entering this into the Once Upon A......Sketch August 1st Challenge.   The theme of this challenge is "A Perfect Day". For this challenge, I did another graduation lo, but using brighter colors.  Believe it, or not, I didn't use a doily in this LO.  Here's the sketch.
I just love this sketch. So simple, yet so elegant. Here's my LO.
I didn't use any special techniques on the page. But I did use some new embellishments I recently purchased (rhinestone circle), and some I won (the pins)... All of the colors that were used on this LO were taken from the photo, down to the pearl necklace I was wearing. 
The pearl pins I won on Becca Feeken's blog, aren't they beautiful. She is such a talented lady. The mini roses are made from a die I just purchased. I think their tiny sizes are just too cute.
My journaling says:

May 11, 2001. 
A Perfect Day is seeing a dream become a reality.  It took me quiet some time to finally graduate from college.  Life has a way of stepping in and altering you plans.  But I never gave up on my dream of earning a college degree. And I finally did it!!! It was A Perfect Day.

Well that's if for me. Have a fabulous day and I'll blog with you later.
