Nephew's graduation card and layout





Kris walking up to get diploma.
Haylee and Kris.
Wyatt and Kris.






Yesterday was my nephew Kris's graduation. I made him a card, word book and layout.
I got the ideas from a couple places.
this is where I got the card idea.

this is where I got the layout idea. I used my cricut and craft robo. A friend on
my local group gave me the cap file, and someone on my cricut group gave me
the diploma file. Thanks everyone. You are the best. I did the class of 2008 and
Kristopher myself on the cricut.

Word books I have made with my Cricut and Design Studio (George cart)


These are for a couple of Haylee's friends (Ash and Courtney) and for Wyatt's teacher (Amanda), and all the secretary's, and the nurses, and Principal and AP. Also for a friend's baby shower, and a friends DH's fifty bday. And I just finished one for my nephew's graduation on Friday. His colors are black and yellow/gold and these are the only papers I had. I am not super happy with it, but hope it's ok.



















Haylee and friends

Haylee has FINALLY given me some pics that she has been greedy about giving out. LOL.
I'm sure you can tell which one's are from Busch Gardens. She went with her friend and her brother. The second one is at Homecoming. Also her and her cousin at the pool. Her and her best
bud since kindergarten (also born on the same day-March 4, 1992) with the FRIEND picture frame. She has many more pics but I am lucky to have these. She is either never around or I
don't have battery's for my camera. More that she isn't around.

Thank you to all who is serving our Country (and have served)

Found this on another blog. http://scrapandstamp.wordpress.com/page/2/

The song is written by 3 soldiers, not an official recording, but it is wonderful.
If I Die Before You Wake.
Listen to it, it is worth it, and take some time to think about all those serving YOUR country.

Can tabs PLEASE for Shriners


I wanted to ask you all if you would mind saving me all your can soda/beer, etc.
tabs. Donny found out that the Shriners takes them. So we are going to start saving
them and turning them in to them. It will be under Wyatt Richard. If you are not
close enough to me to give them to me, you can take them to Shriner's (USF on the
Bruce B Downs side) or any Shriners for that matter. Just say its in the name of
Wyatt Richard. I don't remember everything Donny said but the money goes to
the hospital for costs and such. I would appreciate it. The next time they will be
turning them in for the money will be June. So save them up please. We have a bucket
we are using to save them.
Thanks in advance. And pass the word around. Thanks
