Erica's Graduation Centerpiece

I have been so busy with life that I have not been able to post in awhile. I am happy to tell you that I am now the owner of a Gypsy. Yippeeeeee!!! Now I just have to find time to learn how to use it.

For those that have asked... My hubby is doing great. He has a 20 lb weight limit for the rest of his life; but, that is small compared to what could have been. We have been so blessed and I thank God for every second I have with the grouch. hehe!!!

Our granddaughter, Erica, graduated from High School last week with honors and we are so proud of her. I have been working hard to make centerpieces for the tables at her grad party. I used various Cricut cartridges to make the flowers and butterflies. I used my pazzles to design and cut the words, cap and gown, golf bag and golf flag. It was fun making these... there are six in all. I added pictures of Erica throughout her school years to cover the plastic cups that I used. I used skewers from the houseware department at Meijer as they were only 200 for 1.99 and dowels cost a ton more. The skewers have a pointed end which also helped in placing the pieces in the foam. I used pipe cleaners for the butterflies and some of the words to make them move a bit. The GLHS is for Gull Lake High School that she graduated from and the WMU is for Western Michigan University where she is going in the fall.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day!!! Blessings to you all!!! Thanks for looking!
