Graduation Autograph Book

Hello.  Welcome to a new challenge at 3 Girl JAM.  This challenge is an Anything Goes with Ribbon challenge.  I love anything goes challenges so that I can link whatever project that I'm currently working on.  Be sure to play along with your projects for a chance to win some 3 Girl JAM ribbon.  I have provided a link in the right hand column so you can link up right from there or from the bottom of this post.


Now for my project.  My daughter is graduating from high school next week.  She will be having a graduation ceremony with 2 other homeshooled students.  One of the things we will be doing is decorating a table in the colors of her choice.  One of the decorations we will have is a photo frame that people can autograph.  However, we realized that the frame won't provide much room for people to make comments so we decided to also have an autograph book on the table.  With the extra pages, she will be able to add photographs or journal some of her own memories of this special night.  In the back, there is room for her to keep track of the gifts she receives as well as the thank you notes she sends.

I ended up using a lot of products on this.  I will not even attempt to name them all as many of them I don't even know the names or where I purchased them.  There was a whole lot of stash diving for this project.  Some notable mentions are:
3 Girl JAM - several colors which you can purchase here
Bind-it-all with Cinch binding wire
Project Life black slick writer
Paper - Prima, Bazill, Hot Off the Press, DCWV, The Paper Studio, and unknown others in my stash
Rub-ons - different companies in my stash
My Mind's Eye - Enamel Dots from The Sweetest Thing
Stickers - different companies in my stash
Tim Holtz - tiny attacher,  muse token, swivel clasp, metal tag
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Stampendous "Happy Messages" stamp set

If you are interested in the video, I go through the book page by page and show you the paper, rub-ons, ribbon and goodies in the book.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Remember to take some time to enjoy the little things today.
