Sometimes the only graduation photos you have are full of background images that you don't like or need on your scrapbooking page. The only possible solution is to cut the silhouette and to glue the photos over the solid backgrounds as I did on this page. The second thing is the products we use for graduation projects. If you have the themed products it's very easy to use them. But with non themed products you should fit the colors and the papers to your graduates. My twin girl graduate is what I call "my blue girl": blue eyes, blue mood and even baby blue outfits in her past. So I used Colorways blue collection and added some symbols such as a huge door (that will open in her after college future).
