Grad Bash Blog Hop

Welcome to the Graduation Day Blog Hop! This hop is going to provide you with lots of graduation ideas for all those graduates in your life.

If you have come from Melanie at In Love with a Bug blog, you are in the right place. If you stumbled upon my blog and want to play along, you can do so by starting with Nadia at Nadia's Beautiful Mess Blog.

My son is graduating in just 2 very short weeks so I decided to share a banner I made.  He's having his reception with one of friends so may go back and add their names, not sure yet.  They colors the class choose for graduation are turquoise and silver.  I used the Mother's Day cart from 2010 for the individual banner flags.   I cut strips of turquoise cardstock and scored for the rosettes.  These were 1st rosette's.  They are very easy, I just hadn't had an occasion to use them yet.  I wish I could tell you which cart I used for the font but I forgot to write it down.  Sorry about that!

Just ignore my cluttered counter.  I don't have a nice mantel to hang this from and the house is asleep except for me so the kitchen had to make due for now.  I'll see if I can get a better picture a little later this morning.

I do have blog candy.  All you need to do is leave a comment with a way to reach you.  I'd love for you to follow my blog if you don't already but it's not mandatory to qualify for the candy.

For those of you that are waiting to hear who won blog candy from last weekend, never fear.  I haven't forgotten.  I had a crazy week at work and then came home to work on graduation "shtuff".  Even if I had drawn, I wouldn't have had time to get to the post office.  I will draw all 3 on Sunday evening after everyone has a chance to visit this hop.

Thank you for playing along. Your next stop is the very talented Adri at Ma Cherie Creations.

Here is a list of all participants in case you get lost along the way:
