Graduation at Ohio State

  This weekend was our daughter's graduation from The Ohio State University.  I made her a card:
  My friend Kim had this as a project at her last Workshop- I changed the colors to match the OSU colors- Scarlet and Gray. Supplies all SU.

         Katie is third from the Right- these are her roommates/housemates.

 It is tradition to decorate the top of your hat as well- there were some really interesting designs!

  Graduation was in the football stadium and there were 10,000 graduates!  In the sea of black gowns, we found Katie and since our last names starts with an 'S' she was way up at the top....... We had the perfect location and enjoyed hearing the Speaker of the House John Boehner speak.

 It was a bit humid in the morning (hence the hair gone wild), but it was a picture perfect day . Here is my daughter with a good look at her hat!  She will be continuing on... one more year for her Master's Degree.
 These are my parents with the Graduate at the post graduation cook-out.

  My youngest stayed home and attended multiple grad parties......a couple of cards for her friends:

 Using the Wisped Frames from Technique Junkies and the sentiment from Create with TLC.

This card also uses a Sentiment from Create with TLC and a Technique Junkies technique called Color Sandwich.

Thanks for stopping by!
