Graduation Reception Invitations

My oldest is graduating from high school this year. 
I keep telling him I wish we were starting Kindergarten all over again. 
The school years just seemed to fly by.
He has grown into an amazing young man.  He will be graduating
in the top 5 of his class and he has received the Leadership Scholarship
He plans to study Biology and then go on to medical school.

This is the invitation I made for his Senior reception.
We found an amazing photographer who really worked with Brad
to capture some great pictures of him. This picture happens to
be his favorite.

Photography by Ginger Mathes

The numbers were cut using the Blackletter Cricut cartridge.

Sassy Studio Designs New Release Hop

Welcome to the next stop on the Sassy Studio Designs Release Party Hop.  If you got here from JOVAN'S blog then you are on the right track.  If not, please start at Sassy Studio Designs for all of the hop rules and info.  We are giving away 3 of the new releases so you don't want to miss out on your chance to win.

I used the new Renaissance Sassy for my project.  I have lots of pictures from the Kansas City Renaissance Festival that is held every fall.  This pretty lady looks great on my page.  As you can tell, I usually like clean and simple scrapbook layouts.  All of the diecuts are from the Black letter Cricut cartridge.

My favorite crafting tools are my Cricut Expression and my Cuttlebug.  (I couldn't pick just one)
I love using the Cricut because it is so simple to use and I love the ability to make the cuts the size that I want.  My cuttlebug is used frequently for my cards as well.  I like to use it for embossing and also with my Spellbinders dies.

I am having a hard time deciding what is my least favorite tool.   I wait to buy new tools until I read reviews from other users so I don't purchase something I won't like.  With that being said, I think  one item I am most disappointed in is my set of Nellie Snellen flower punches.  They do punch out the paper just fine but I don't think that the embossing is that detailed. 

Your next stop along the hop is

Before you go, don't forget to leave me a comment.  One lucky winner will be drawn from all of the comments listed on the DT members bogs.

Makeup: I first colored her face in skin tones and then add all the make up touches. E04 for lips, W1 and W3 for eyeshadow I  used chalk for her cheeks
