Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to look at my creations...I love making memories that I can share with my family and friends....and especially my daughters. They are my inspirations for creating a lot of these layouts. I love taking everyday ordinary things and making them into beautiful altered art. My downfall is buying beautiful papers and not wanting to use them because they are too gorgeous. LOL. Please take the time to check out my crafts, follow my blog and maybe even scraplift them and make sure you let others know where you got the idea...Love to have new followers of my blog.

Graduation basket!

Hello everyone! I have been busy planning my hubby's graduation picnic for the 4th of July! He is graduating from Dean Tech ...I am so proud of him. He has been working full-time, going to school partime and still manages to have time for my dd and I wanted to do something special for him.

I hope he likes this. This is my 1st basket that I've made and I really enjoyed making it, I made it manly without flowers, ribbon, or favs...but I didn't think he would appreciate that so I came up with this.

Carts used :

WC for the graduation hat (this is the grad card) faux stitched and inked cut @ 6 1/2", then the diploma is inked cut @ 8"

Frame for the sign is cut @ 10" and then at 9 1/2" (for a shadow)

LT (lockertalk) for the pencil cut @ 2 1/2", books cut @ 4 1/4", pennant cut @ 4", note paper cut @ 4 1/2" and then the compass (it is fixed to the notepaper) (he always had to use one of these) cut @ 4 1/2", and then the calculator cut @ 5 1/2".

George cart for the "Way to go" cut @ 2 1/2"

everything was inked and then I found some gold grad necklaces that I used inside basket and also dangled one on the outside, added star clips (also because it will be on the 4th),

The pipecleaners (gold) I found at Michaels and thought of I needed to add those.

Oh last but not least the sign says

" No more pencils"
" No more books"
" No more teachers dirty looks!"

I hope all of you like and god bless all of you!
