Banners and Gift Bags

I planned a big dinner for Johnny’s graduation and made this banner out of fun vintage fonts I got at House of 3, if you haven’t been there before you should check them out.  I have the ones with both PDF and PNG files which is nice because with the PNG files I was able to open them in Photoshop and color the letters and background brown and gold, which are the school colors. 

I also made gift bags for all of the families who came to graduation.  I wanted a nice way to say thank you to everyone for driving such a long way to help us celebrate.  I made homemade chocolate chip cookies and we added a bunch of fun brochures about the history of the town and campus.  On the outside I typed up a schedule of events for the weekend telling everyone what time everything started and where.  It was really a nice way to keep everyone on the same page.  My family loved them!

 I also bought bucking cowboy pins (the school logo) for everyone to wear on graduation day.

I have said it before, and I will say it again, I {heart} Photoshop!  You can do so many more things than just edit pictures.
