Honor Roll for Brian! @ Creative Embellishments

Hello!  "Gammy" pride here!  My grandson Brian was excited to attend the little school ceremony to receive his certificate for being on the 3rd grade Honor Roll.  Well, of course, it HAD to be scrapped! This page was created for (click & go->) CREATIVE EMBELLISHMENTS.  I LOVE chipboard, so being part of this great team is easy-their products are also SO REASONABLY PRICED.  There is a monthly challenge for a chance to win $50 in those products.  I hope you can join us-you still have 4 days!!!

MY LAYOUT:
Creative Embellishments Products Used:
Globe , rectangle frame KNOWLEDGEArrowA,B,C :  I used Tim Holtz
Distress Paint, when dried, I applied a coat of Glossy Accents. 
On the "A,B,C" I then white washed them so you could see the ABC.
