Haylee's Graduation & Family Reunion

 I made this LO of Haylee's Graduation on Monday. Her graduation was June 8 at Pamlico County High School. The main paper and stickers are Mambi Graduation set. The black, gold, and silver rhinestones strip is Recollections and also PCHS colors (except the silver). I attached the program with a paper fastener. I highlighted her name inside the program. The pic mats are  Colorbok Colored Texture 12x12 paper. The pics are of Haylee with my mom and her dad & then her cake at the bottom. Easy peasy! :)
I  made this LO today. The stickers are Momenta Puffy Word Sticker Family. I titled it "Family Reunion". The sticker at the bottom is "cousins" because they are my cousin's children. Cousins once removed or something like that! The journaling states that "Thoma took all these pix. He even took the one of himself at the bottom! Kylee, Kylee, and Mama are in the middle pic. We're making fish with tissue paper squares, glitter markers, and glue sticks. The top pic is of Mr. Raffael and his children." The fish was the craft I mentioned in my last post. They're chipboard found at Michaels made by Creatology. They have several designs not just fish! The main paper is Me & My Big Ideas Sunshine Speciality Pack and the pic mats are Six By Six by My Mind's Eye Happier Designer Card Stock Paper Double Sided. Today is my birthday, so I had to scrap! I was given the day off!! I made myself breakfast, watched Dirty Dancing on VH1, caught up on DVR shows, had a chocolate chip cookie pizza as my cake/chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, received a Vivitar Vivicam 7122 (hot pink) w/ a memory card & Pretzel M&M's from my parents! I've received lots of birthday wishes on Facebook, e-mail, and various sites. It's been a good day and the celebrating isn't over! I'm celebrating more on Saturday on a date and then Accidental Artist Paint Until You Faint! I'll share details of the date later!! :) TFL!

Catching Up

 I wanted to do a LO of the Children's Musical/Play "Spend Awhile On the Nile", but didn't take any pics. I did at least have a program! As the snake journaling block states it was "Debbie Haagen's Last Children's Musical/Dinner Theater with BCCC". The bottom journaling block states that "The kids all loved singing every song & all their parts. You could tell by the excitement on their faces!"  The paper is DCWV All About Boys Stack, the "Adventure Bound" sticker & fish sticker are both Momenta from a huge set of stickers that I bought at TJ Maxx $30 worth for about $4! The snake journaling block was given to me in a RAK from Sandi. The bottom brown journaling block was in a book, I don't remember the name of it. It was white in the middle to begin with and I colored it with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Currant and Meadow! The blue outline is Stickles. The balloon and string are Hallmark stickers for a birthday celebration, but the kids did have balloons in the performance is why I included a balloon! The blue dots on the paper are water dots and made with Tim Holtz Adirondack Alcohol Ink Meadow. I also highlighted some water "waves" with Stickles Waterfall and Blue.
 I have been saving this pic to do with these papers for awhile. I saw it when I was looking for paper for the previous LO so I decided to complete it! This picture is of Tyler on "Sturdy Beggar outside the NC History Center at Tryon Palace". All the paper is All About Boys Stack 12x12 and 6x6 (even the pic mat). The title is stickers from a book that I bought from TJ Maxx that included the journaling block in the previous LO that I can't remember the name of. My dad bought this pirate hat for Tyler at a shop in Beaufort when they were here to visit last Thanksgiving. We kept saying "arrgh" like pirates and I think we should have been saying "yarr"! lol That's why I included all the sayings pirates say over the picture!

I did this LO following the above sketch for Sketches in Thyme. I've always liked Thomas Kinkade and love lighthouses. I chose this post card- Clearing Storms to do this LO with! It's from "Seaside Memories IV and Published 1997" as the journaling states under it. The paper is Colorbok Summer. I thought the lines on the paper kinda resemble waves. The brown polka dot paper is Recollections Cupcake Creations 8.5x11 paper pack, the blue water spot paper is Colorbok Textures, and the title stickers and the other stickers are Colorbok Summer. The zigzagged banner is K&Company that I bought from TJ Maxx as well. I may retake a pic of this LO. It is really dark on my screen. I have until June 30 to post to Sketches in Thyme, I believe. Please comment and let me know what you think before I link it to Sketches in Thyme! TFL!

Graduation 2012

I made these cards for Laurel & Haylee. The first card is from Laurel. I was inspired by their school colors and decided to use them in both cards. Laurel is graduating from New Bern High on Saturday, my Alma Mater. NBHS' colors are red & black, so I used Recollections Adhesive Rhinestones that are red & black. The paper is Mambi Graduate Collection as are the stickers on both cards. The ribbon is Recollections "2012" with stars.The second card is for Haylee and she is graduating from Pamlico County High tomorrow night or later tonight. PCHS' colors are black & gold so I chose Recollections Adhesive Rhinestones again in black & gold! The red/black rhinestones are actually on a longer string and I cut one string in half. I added more stickers on the inside and put a slip of paper with red in Laurel's and gold/yellow in Haylee's for me to write a note on. I wrote a book in each! Laurel grew up in my church youth group and Haylee is my stepsister who I have watched grow from 1st grade until now- the end of her senior year. They are both going onto the same college- UNCW. Haylee is going into Nursing & Laurel into Day Care, but I'm not sure about that. Laurel is good with kids so she could major in that! I will be attending Haylee's, but not Laurel's. We have a family get together on Saturday at my grandmama's house. I've actually prepared a fish craft for the little kids to do after lunch and will have a pic to share later!  I have some scrapbook LOs to share, but will post them later. Graduation is on my mind right now, so I thought I'd share these! Enjoy and have a great weekend! :)
