Some HUGE news and a Graduation!!

First of all, I'm an aunt Woo Hoo!! My sister in law had her baby girl, Cora, Wednesday am at 6:00. We are very excited to meet her, get ready for some baby posts!!



I can't believe my little one is graduating from preschool today!! It snuck up on me a bit so I was a little limited in gift choices for her teachers. So I decided to make altered clipboards.

I used DSP and die cuts from SU's creative license SSK, a hostess kit from the FW 2007 catty. I saw it used on a school page on a blog somewhere and thought it was a great idea. And I had all the materials on hand. I covered the kids' picture, but boy are they a bunch of cuties!! It is from a class trip to the farm where we picked pumkins and apples. The pumpkins and hay in the photo look great with the pumpkin pie mat.
I used retired whimsical alphabet for the letters. I added ribbon to the clip and now I think I may add more!!
I made simple 3x3 notcard to go with them, but they are packaged already ooops!

Also, today's the last day to stamp something monochromatic, so be sure to join in the challenge for some blog candy!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
