The Graduate

My son just left to join his fellow seniors to practice his graduation ceremony for tomorrow night. It is good to reflect as you close a chapter in your life and open another one. He is great guy, artistic, musical, organized and a good friend, and we are so proud that he was accepted to University of Central Missouri, we couldn't ask for a better son. So we are going to celebrate. Here is the invitation to his graduation party that I made. I swiped the idea from they have several good ideas for graduation announcement. We are inviting 120 of our closes friends (gasp) so pray for no rain that day because our little house will never fit everybody. Happy Graduation Andrew we are so very proud.

The directions are on the Archivers web site but I tweaked mine a little bit just to get the best use of paper, cut an 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of black card stock in half and the card is folded to look like a matchbook cover. The inside paper is pearlized from Office Depot, it was $10.00 for 50 sheets. The pearlized paper was used around the picture too. The graduation cap is a Sizzix die that was borrowed from a friend (thank you Pat) and I used a Gelly Roll pen. I am not sure of the exact name of the pen but it very sparkly ink that I used on the tassel. The ribbon I just happened to come across at Walmart it was $1.97 for a roll which I thought was a bargain. I only needed 2 rolls of it for 50 invitation. (Note: I am close to 2 Walmart and the Super Duper Walmart did not have this ribbon I found it at the "small" Walmart.) They did have 2 different kinds of ribbon the graduation with black and white with a cap, scroll and stars.

The picture was the hardest thing.....if you have teenager you may understand. Andrew says he has no soul left because his picture has been taken so much over the last 2 weeks (he had his senior pictures taken also)

Alright, so I'm off to clean the house for the grandparents are coming tomorrow.
