Congrats Grad

Last weekend I had the pleasure of watching my Best Friend, walk across the stage at American University having earned her Master's degree!!! I was soooo proud of her! She worked very hard, spending practically every Saturday in class, so that she could achieve her goal...and it ALL paid off! I wish her nothing but success and happiness in all that she has in store for her in her future! She is an amazing person and I'm so lucky to be able to say that she is my Best Friend!

In celebration of her achievement and big day I made the following goodies for her
Isn't this card just the cutest...

I used Everyday Paper Dolls to cut the graduate and Wedding to cut the banner. The stamps are from Emma's set called Follow Your Dreams 
The sentiments are from the same Follow Your Dreams set

I love this sentiment!

I knew that she would need some Thank You cards, so I made her a set of 8 cards.

Sentiment & Diploma is from Follow Your Dreams set, the cap is from the new Happy Graduation solutions cartridge

Set all bundled

I attempted to mod podge again. I used one of the wooden frames from Michaels and covered it in this paper.

The banner is from the Happy Graduation cartridge My ribbon on the right hand side, ended up a little crooked...oh well, we aren't all perfect

Last but not least, I needed something to put all this stuff in, so I used a kraft bag that I had lying around and added the paper layer and then the banner.

Banner is cut from Happy Graduation

All stuffed!

Thanks for stopping by today. I have many things that I am going to be working on this week including my project for the Blast Off Into Summer Blog Hop that Wendy and I are hosting next weekend! You aren’t going to want to miss it! By the way, don't forget to submit your projects for my April Showers giveaway. You have until Monday night to enter! J

Until next time…
