Honor student - Creative Embellishments layout

Good morning!
I created a layout about our oldest son receiving his honors award for this months challenge at Creative Embellishments

Cody is so smart and works really hard to keep good grades.
We are so proud of the effort and commitment he has to achieving high marks

I used some BoBunny paper from a previous Scraps of Darkness kit that I think matched the awesome grungy feel of the chipboard I chose to use

I LOVE my new Creative Embellishments Distressed Corner stamp!!!! 
I used it along the edge of the photo and papers

For the honor student title I painted it with Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint from Prima in blue and red, then added blue prills and lots of black ink to grunge it up!  For the grunge arrow I simply embossed it with black embossing powder.

For the grunge stars and washi tape I painted them with coordinating colors then inked them to  grunge them up a bit.  I also add a few pieces of school flair for the finishing touch.

I LOVE this grunge star corner!  I painted, inked and embossed it to add to the whole distressed feel of the layout

I created this layout for the September challenge at Creative Embellishments!
