I have made a little Grad button that I will be wearing tomorrow night at Graduation, and will probably wear it at my son's grad party too and who knows where else. lol I used Accents Essentials Cricut cartridge for my spiky circles. I really wanted the Graduation Cricut cartridge but didn't buy it when it was marked down and now people are selling it at outrageous prices. Lived and learned on that one! But all is ok, as I made what I had work for me. I cut them out in silver and a maroon cardstock and off set them. I use silver and maroon ribbon as well as some white ribbon. I staples these in between the spiky circles. Then I made a rosette using the MCT stitched rosette dies. Took a wallet sized pic from his grad pictures and made it into a circle using a old My Creative Memories cutter and placed it on my rosette with hot glue. I was going to use vinyl to put his initials, school initials and the year but I have so many letter stickers that I just decided to use those instead, they are My Creative Memories too. This will make it's way into the photo album after I'm done wearing it. That's it! Now all I have to do is wear it! Next is going to be some table decorations and banners. Thanks for stopping by a spell and visiting with me. I really love it when you do stop by especially on a grey day. I appreciate and love all your comments and offers of help when I need it. Karen, I am so looking forward to your tutorials on water color next month!! Crafty hugs to you all, Brenda
