Altered notebooks

Here are a couple more altered notebooks I made as a thank you to my SIL for helping with Riley's grad party. The first one is a full size Composition book and the second one is a mini one. I used a K & Co. paper stack. I also decorated a bag to put them in.  I do not remember the Cricut font I used for the W......

Here are a few pictures from Riley's graduation. The first one shows the t-shirts I made. I used iron on vinyl. I used my CRICUT to cut the letters and numbers. I used Birthday Bash cartridge for those.

The next three are from the graduation ceremony and right after. It went well and  we lucked out that the rain waited until most of the people had left the receiving line after the ceremony.

This is Riley's invitation to his high school graduation party. I used my Cricut to make the cuts. I used Locker Talk for the grad hat and Birthday Bash for the 2012. I designed the blue base using CDS with the George cartridge.

Graduation Card Box

Here is the card box I made for Riley's graduation. I got the idea while browsing through Pinterest and found one similar that was being sold on Etsy. I have posted how I made it in the comments below.

Riley's Art Show

Riley entered this project into the area schools art show. He made it by carving into a linoleum block and then using a brayer and ink to make a print. He copied it 12 times to make the final project. He received a superior and received that max possible points on it. He also got the Best of Show in the printmaking category. Out of the 140 something entries there were 9 Best of Show winners. He is then invited to show his artwork in the Twin Cities with all the other Best of Show winners through out the state of MN. We are very proud of him!
