Graduation Thank You Cards

So with both children having a graduation this past month, I knew we would be in need of thank you cards x 2.  I wanted to make something easy enough to mass produce but unique to each of my children's graduation.  So of course I started out on my extensive internet search for my inspiration (someday I will be able to think of something on my own - LOL).  I came across a card posted on the Cricut forum by a lady named A. Paperdoll. I knew I could mass produce these cards quickly so the process began.  I color coordinated the thank you cards to each of the school colors. Here is my rendition of the thank you card:

The month of May was a very busy month for us.  Our daughter graduated from college and our son graduated from high school.  So yesterday I finally sat down and decided to scrapbook the graduation pictures.  Of course, I had to start with my daughter's high school picture first.  OK, so it was 4 years ago......I've been thinking about the layout all this time! LOL
The paper is from a local scrapbook store that specializes in creating pages for the local schools.  The Cricut cartridges I used were Elegant Edges and Plantin Schoolbook for the circles and letters.  I added the front of her graduation announcement and the actual ticket to the graduation. I hope you enjoy the layout and would love to here any comments, good or bad. Thanks for looking!
