Graduation Board!

Good morning bloggers! I apologize for my lack of posting, I meant to post yesterday and realized my sister had my camera so I couldn't upload pictures, and then I was busy the rest of the day.

For my graduation party this weekend, I created a display board that showcases my academic achievements such as report cards, scholarship award letters, etc. Also, there are some super adorable thank you cards that I included in the board that are from students in a fourth grade class that I assisted with throughout the school year as part of a teacher's assistant program. (I'm going to be majoring in elementary education, and it was definitely a good experience!)

I used a black tri-fold poster board, and hand created the letters by tracing stencils onto gold cardstock paper and then cutting them out, gluing them to the board, and adding some gold glitter. My school colors were black and gold, in case you couldn't tell. ;)

Here are some up close pictures of just the letters before the board was finished, keep in mind that these pictures were taken before I went back and added glitter to spots needed or removed glitter in areas where there was too much, think of this as the "rough draft" :)

This is the middle section of the board.

This is the left side of the board.

This is the right side of the board.
Now, for the actual board itself:
This is the board standing up, please excuse my garbage can in the background. :) I apologize for the blurriness of thep pictures, still working on the lighting! 

This is the board lying flat on the ground. I apologize for these terrible pictures,  I'll try and get some good ones while it's up at the party and post them this weekend. :)

The nice thing about my crazy life this past week is that surprisingly I've actually had time to think of card ideas. After a few more graduation-related posts (thank you cards and possibly labels for all of the food, if time permits) I have many creations in mind and one of them is actually being created in the midst of doing all this graduation stuff. I'll try and post the thank you cards tomorrow or Friday, it depends on how much cooking and cleaning my mom is going to make me do!

I hope you all had a great Fourth of July and are enjoying your week!
