Congrats Graduate

Our family has had few busy weeks with many events and celebrations one of which was my baby girl graduated valedictorian Woo Hoo!  I'm so proud of her and her accomplishments.  We had wonderful family and friends travel for the occasion to congratulate her, and of course we shared good food and fun together.

I made a few graduation cards and treats for some close graduate friends. 
 For the graduation hat I used and image from Miss Kate Cuttables "Graduation Day" and cut it using my Silhouette Cameo machine.
 I added an action wobble behind the hat to create a fun wobble affect, it's so fun to see all the graduates hats flying up in the air after graduation.

I used three metal die sets from My Craft Spot on my cards... the Congrats is from Big Words metal die, I cut it twice in black and orange then layered the orange over the black to give a shadow look.  The personalized name letters are from the Small Alphabet metal die, the torn notebook paper edge is from the Fancy Edges metal die. These metal dies are available from My Craft Spot Shop -HERE.
 Inside of card, again the same Fancy Edges metal die for the torn notebook edge, I also distressed the edges of the paper as well.

For the yummy chocolate treats I used sticker address labels (30 per sheet) along with my photoshop program and designed labels that fit perfectly over the Hershey's Nuggets.  I used the same graduation images from Miss Kate Cuttables for the labels.
Our delicious food, my daughters did a great job cutting up fruits and veggies and beautifully decorating the trays... everything was... mmmmm so good!
What an amazing day we had, I hope you get a chance to hug a graduate! :)
