Graduation Stuff

My sister-in-law asked me to design a graduation announcement for her college graduation and this is what I came up with.  I created it using Photoshop.  I have blurred out the personal information incase you’re wondering what all that weird smudging is. I have so much fun designing stuff like this.

She also asked me to design an invitation for her and her daughter’s graduation party.  I think it’s really neat that they are both graduating—one from college, and the other from high school—and are celebrating it together.

I know it’s not a card, but I just thought I would share what I have been doing and another hobby of mine.

Thanks for stopping by.

Very creative Karen, I wish I could do more with Photoshop - keep meaning to do a course but just don't get the time.

Hugs,

Karen, Both designs are beautiful. What a time for your family. I lived in Lynchburg 3 years. My oldest son graduated from Liberty.

Great invites. I love the idea of them celebrating their graduation together.

Karen said...

What a lovely job you've done. I'm sure she's very pleased with the result.

Carrie said...

You are very talented with your craft supplies and the computer. These both are so great. Congratulations to both the graduates.

My comment is actually in the posting from Carrie. Apparently my daughter started a blog and had logged in on my computer and I didn't realize it when I started commenting. So basically the Carrie is me...sorry for the confusion.

Karen, these are terrific! I would hire you! Seriously. What a blessing you are to your SIL & niece! I wish I knew what I was doing with Photoshop. I need another hobby like a hole in the head, but I am inspired to check out a how-to and learn a little bit now!
