Class of 2009







Today is John's High School graduation! Both Dave and John have been waiting 18 long years for this day! (although I really don't think John was really happy about it until this year, when reality set in).

Here's a picture of the graduation boy, taken by Dave several months ago.


I made the gift box for John over the course of the week. I finished the details this morning:



The diploma enclosed contains an image of his gift and a short quote:

To be all that is possible we must attempt the impossible. To be all that we can be, we must dream of being more.

When I complete the tutorial for the box, I'll post a link.

Here's a quick summary:

The cap/diploma image is from Hanna Stamps, the Hanna graduation set. I layered it with gold scalloped (Nestability) and basic gray cardstock.

The "2009 Congrats" uses Justrite's vertical stamper and the Times New Roman font set.
I used gold embroidery floss for the tassle, and a star brad from Stampin Up!

Congratulations to John. I think it must be bittersweet for parents - such a new style of life awaits! Adorable box and I'm going to have to borrow that sentiment to put in my next grad card! (hope you don't mind!)
Wow! He should love this! Congrats to surviving 18 years!

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets
