I received this cute thank you card from another fellow Stampin Up demonstrator, who had won the blog candy (beveled frame pin) I offered during the Sudsol blog tour. I love the colors in it, and especially love lighter shades of blue and polka dots! Thanks Marti!!

I am finishing up decorating the graduation photobook for my son - here is the front of it, with a chocolate chip striped grosgrain ribbon. The book is crumb cake linen fabric, very elegant, with brown for the inside front and back cover. I have been posting some pages of it this week.
Here's a closeup of the embellishments I attached to the grosgrain ribbon - Stampin Up's new early expresso striped baker's twine and a vintage trinket that is a key with a lobster claw. Hope he doesn't think it's too feminine - guess I will find out this weekend...
I also made a hybrid card for his graduation, which is a combo of My Digital Studio and non-digital cardmaking items. I embossed the front with the square lattice embossing folder, glued it onto designer paper, and added a strip of trimmed down grosgrain ribbon at the bottom. That is a filligree brad with a glimmer brad at the bottom, and marina mist taffeta ribbon at the top.
I even made a "matching" card for my son's girlfriend! Her card has the rich razzleberry ribbon at the bottom, a white brad, and the scallops are in razzleberry too. I hope they don't think I am too old-fashioned and corny for being sentimental....!! Gee, you only get to graduate from high school once!!
