The first card is a Masculine card using Bliss B&T, Chocolate, Grey Flannel, Outdoor Denim, Grey Wool & Outdoor Denim Inks, Stamp Sets are Card Chatter- Birthday, and Beautiful Things.  the card pattern is based on the "Simple Expression" template from the Wishes Card Confidence program.
We stamped an image on the inside of each card for added effect.

This simple card is based on the cards from the Mistletoe Workshop on the Go.  Materials used Bliss B&T, Holiday Red, Black & White Daisy Cardstock, Holiday Red & Black Inks, Shining Star and Say It In Style.

We are in the home stretch

Well Both of Robbie's Graduation ceremonies are done.  His tassel has been turned and he is getting ready to start his first job as an adult.  We still have his graduation party to go, and in the mean time I will be frantically be working on his scrapbook and decorations which I will be displaying on here as I get them done.

I have gotten all Robbie's Baseball team pictures done, and am getting ready to work on the hardest sport pages to work on, His wrestling pages.  These are hard cause I am so sad that I will never see him wrrestled again, even though I hated the sport when him and Jimmy first went out for the team, I love it now.  It is the one sport where you have to rely on your own strength and endurance to get you through and Robbie had several memorable matches.  I have so many pictures from him wrestling that I am having a hard time deciding which ones to use.  I am thinking of using the Close To My Heart Flip-Flap's to get as many pictures as I can on the pages   While I am workingon those here are the latest batch of layouts I have completed for his scrapbook.

The picture used here was one that had been damaged in the fire,

Count Down to Graduation

Well Robbie is in the final countdown till his graduation.  He officially has only 7 more school days left, he can't wait.  Me, I am trying to stretch it out and make it longer! I have way too much to do before his Gaduation Party on June 4th.  I have to finish his scrapbook, or atleast get some wrestling pages done,  get the food ready, find/create the decorations,  all in addition to doing the normal everyday things like work and chase the rest of the boys around to baseball, drivers ed, etc. 

But I do have a good start, I have got his graduation invitation designed and printed, all I have to do now is stuff the envelopes and mail them.  Here is the final version of his graduation invitation.
