100th Post! And a giveaway!

Ok...gonna give this a try. With so many photos sometimes I can't get blogger to arrange it very well.

I can't believe I made it to my 100th post!
So the first two photos are layouts that I did for Paper Vineyard. Every Monday we are giving away 10 layouts to the first 10 customers that spend $10. Pretty cool. Then the second page is available to purchase for $5. Sweet deal.

The next photos are from my class at Paper Vineyard last Saturday. It was the Adore Butterfly Mini-Book. What a fun class! We sold out all 10 spots! Yahoo! I didn't realize how many tiny pieces there were to this project until I started assembling the kits. Oh my. But we made it through and the gals loved it. They each walked out with a totally completed book. No problems. Gotta love that. :)

And finally the last photos are of the graduation party this past Sunday. We kept the party small...just family and a couple friends. It was so much fun decorating for the party. Lucky for me Hamilton and ASU share common colors so I had quite a few things leftover from previous grad parties. We ordered Joe's BBQ (one of our family's favorites), baked some wonderful rolls that we got at Sams Club (they were yummy), tons of fruit & veggies, potato salad, my son's favorite strawberry pretzel salad, corn on the cob, chips, etc. I had a dessert table set up with pies, brownies, mini cheesecakes and graduation hats that I made. The grad hats were so much fun to put together. Reeses cup, hershey bar, m & m and some red licorice...a tiny bit of chocolate frosting to hold it all together and voila'.
I also set up a table with ASU items, graduation book, photos, awards, cap & gown, etc.

Everyone had a great time and the weather could not have been better. My son brought the new puppy. Cannot believe how much Dexter ran around that day. He even got in the pool and swam. Finally toward the end he just dropped....absolutely wiped out. Too cute!

So I have been putting off posting for a few days now trying to figure out what to do for my 100th post. I really don't have many followers so doing something big seemed silly. But still...who doesn't love a giveaway, right! So leave a comment and I will randomly pick a winner to receive your choice of either a washer necklace like the one I made for my future daughter-in-law or a scrabble tile necklace. Good Luck and thanks for sharing in this fun blogging journey!
