A Higher Education

Sunday we had a small family party for my brother, Jim. It was a fun little get together at a local family run restaurant. Great food and atmosphere. The Nutcracker is set up like a 50's diner. Last year they had a fire that pretty much destroyed the place. Our little town of Pataskala banned together and raised a large amount of money to help rebuild The Nutcracker!! It really is a great restaurant.

What were we celebrating? My brother received his Master's Degree in Teaching. We are all very proud of him. I had no idea what his school colors were. I'm going to wager a bet that he doesn't either! LOL Anyway, this is what I came up with...


I love the large SU! alphabets. This one is Letter Press. I used Night of Navy craft ink for the letters. I like the way the craft ink covers better with these solid stamps. Yes, I meant to stamp the letters crooked. I can never get them straight, so I always go for the "MOP's" look *Messy on Purpose* I wasn't sure that I still had this little graduation cap stamp. I found it in my craft sale box!! I think it has now found a permanent position on my retired stamp set shelf!! LOL! Celebrate from Wonderful Words was stamped across the letters in Gold Pigment ink. Heat set of course to avoid smearing. Did I tell you, I'm impatient...I don't like to wait for things to dry!! Enjoy!!
