For the Grad!! - Party Decor

It's the first of the month and that means another challenge at The Paper Variety!!
I knew right away that I wanted to make something for my son's graduation party for this challenge. I can't believe my baby is graduating from high school!!! Where did the years go. Anyway this is what I came up with...
Isn't this candy bouquet fun!  Here are some more pics...
The star was cut with George and Basic Shapes, the Congratulations was cut with Everyday Pop-Up Cards.
The 3D grad caps are an svg cut file from SVGcuts and are actually little boxes. I am making several of these to place on the tables at my son's grad party.

Our Prize for this challenge is this Crate Paper Pretty Party collection!

This is my last Paper Variety post :(  I am scaling my DT work down a bit so soon you will just see Quick Quotes and Artful Delight posts from me. I want to enjoy my kids before they all leave me in the fall to return to college. I have truly loved working with my fellow designers. They have been so inspiring.

There is a new DT call open at The Paper Variety. Abby and Suzanne are the best to design for! You have until June 8th to apply.

I am linking my project up with
