A Graduation Party And Some Technical Difficulties

I am so happy to finally be doing a post.  I have missed blogging but have had some technical difficulties.  I tried to do this post a month ago and was not able to because I had used all my free picture storage.  I was not aware that I had a limit on picture storage so after cleaning up my Picassa account of duplicate photos I was able to add the pictures in this post.  I then tried to make this post and kept getting error codes every time I tried to login to my blog.  Has anyone else had similar issues?  I hate to purchase additional storage if I am not always going to be able to make posts.

Now on to the fun stuff.  This May my daughter graduated from high school.  I had so much fun getting ready for the open house.

May favorite thing that I made for the party was this banner.

I cut the pendants out using my Cricut machine and the graduation cartridge.  I then tore out pages from a paperback and glued them on the back of the pendants.

I just love the little metal clips I used to attached the pendants to the cord.  I found them at Hobby Lobby.

I also cut these numbers out using my Cricut and clipped them to a cord with some black and white photos.

Her school colors were red and white so I did a fun display with candy.  This was a big hit with the kids. 

 I also thought this was a great way to display her gown.

Thanks as always for stopping by and if you are a blogger and have any words of wisdom for me on my recent blogger issues, please leave a comment.  Thanks!

  1. Looks like a fabulous party -- I love the banner -- very clever! Candy displays are so popular right now. We did one for daughter's baby shower earlier this year -- blues :)


    P.S. Good to see you posting - techincal difficulties are the pits - especially if you are not a computer person like me :)

  2. What a great celebration! I love your banners! Sorry about your blogger problems...hope all is up and working now.

  4. I love your banners--especially the one with the photos. Congrats to the graduate!

  5. Congratulations (my son graduated HS too)!
    Loving all your decorations!

  6. I love your banner! I want to use it in my classroom. Maybe chalkboard cards? But love the twine and clips, too! Thanks for the inspiration, Michele

  7. As Excessive as I am I quickly ran out of Photo Storage whilst Blogging. Believe it or not the amount needed to Purchase additional Storage is so cheap that it is one of the best deals around for something as Fun as Blogging and Sharing Images. I think my additional Stoage is $5 a year... seriously, can't beat that! Hope you are able to decide upon what is best for your Blogging needs so that you can stay Connected here in the Land of Blog... we so enjoy your Posts.
