Hello, my dearest stampers and friends!!
After this weekend my life might get back to some semblance of normal...I'm looking forward to that!! Andrew finally graduated! Here we are as a family at his Open House!
Before I jump in...I also would love to show you Andrew's pictures from Prom...here is the blog of his photographer, a family friend of Olivia, but she does an awesome job, and is certainly for hire! She did Olivia's Graduation pictures, and they were awesome!
I decided in this blog post to show you how grateful I was to have my Big Shot, and all my fun papers, dies, and crafting supplies. It made getting ready for Andrew's open house so much more easy and fun! These pictures will show you some ways to use your supplies too, or maybe even give you some ideas of things you might want to purchase so you can use them for ANY event that you have coming up!!! (weddings, showers, parties, open houses and more!)
This was the centerpiece for the main display table. I literally went outside, found a few branches, and then hung his medals, and school photos to it. I also made a small banner with his name on it. Girls can have beautiful flowers, but not so much for a boy...so this is what I came up with.
Here are some shots of the displays.
Of course, I had to have a game or contest there! Winner got a 25.00 Gift Certificate to Olive Garden. Andrew's Girlfriend won, and then she took him to dinner after graduation with the gift card, so that worked out well. : )
I did make a 40 page scrapbook of his highschool basketball years.
These were the center pieces for all the tables. I made 12 of them. Each one had about 18-20 pictures on display. Of course, filled with shredded scraps of cards stock from making his scrapbook! I used Big shot dies to make the "flowers" for the pictures.
Picking up the many mini basketballs that found their way thrown around. Not the best idea with Carter in the room...he had them everywhere!
See what I mean.....
Thanks for letting me share!! I loved my last weekend...but so grateful it's over. Ready for real life to kick in again! I promise my next post will feature some new stamped cards and projects! I've been busy working with the new stamps and papers!! Before I leave....here is one more shot of me and my little boy....um...I mean my young man....
Thanks for letting me share my life with you...you are SUCH a blessing to me!!
