Today's the BIG Day!

Well, it is officially Tuesday (12:08 actually), so the big day has come, my graduation ceremony. Tonight is the Convocation from the College of Education, the actual whole college ceremony is Friday morning at Meadowlands. Tonight is more personal and smaller, where my name is actually read! Later today I will be going to get a mani/pedi with Katie (fun!)

Earlier tonight, I worked on some swaps that I am behind on, since they are due Friday! I've got to get to the post office today!

Here is a picture of my graduation announcements/party invitations that my Mom and I made together. They are actually postcards with the info on the back, but will be mailed in envelopes. They are stamped with teachabella and colored in with colored pencils and gamsol. I loved this quote stamp, which reads "The best way to predict your future is to create it" I found this stamp at the scrap store Sara and I visited in Milltown, NJ called Scrapper's Cove.

These two cards follow the same colors and sketch, but on the chickie one, the background is made using baby wipes with reinkers and dabbing the paper on the wipes, a neat effect. The Hoppy frog background is made with shaving cream and reinkers. It was funny because I didn't have foam shaving cream, only Andy's gel shaving cream, which sorta worked, but for some reason the colors aren't as vibrant. Andy helped me mix the shaving cream and add the ink, he was bored today and said he wanted to help stamp. Instead, Sara and I sent him to the kitchen to bake a cake (and he actually did!! Good boy! haha).

Hope you had a lovely Mother's Day! Here is a photo of my Mom and her kiddo's, including the doggie (who wasn't very willing to pose so Robby had to pick her 80 pound self up to get in the picture). Take note of our brand spanking new kitchen in the background!! (BTW, the back door still needs to be painted green :)
