My Time Made Easy Release Day - A Little Bit S'more

Today is release day at My Time Made Easy and the entire team is posting today.  This month's theme is centered around camping.  We have a turtle template, a vintage camper tempate, three stamp sets with camping images and sentiments, cut files, and paper oh my!!   You can see all the new products here on the MTME website.
So if we have a camping theme, why are you seeing a graduation girl?  Well, the MTME templates can be used in a variety of ways!  Wait until you see what the girls have come up with!  I've been in graduation mode.  My niece is graduating at the end of the month and I've just finished making her party invitations...40 of them!  So I used the Happy Camper template and turned it into a head and placed a graduation cap on it!  I have to admit that I got the idea to use the template as a head from Lauren...she created a wowzer with hers and I just ran with that idea!

I cut the template out of Blush cardstock.  I used a 3/4" punch for the blue eyes and a hand held punch for the whites.  I added some eyelashes and pupils with a black marker.  The smile was created using the handle from the Treasured template.  I just had to cut off a bit of it to get the right shape.  For the cheeks, I punched a 1" circle and used the negative piece as a template to stipple some pink ink on either side of the smile.  So cute!  Then I cut a 3 3/4" square out of purple cardstock (my niece's school colors are purple and white) for the cap.  My niece is graduating with honors and will have a gold tassle, so I added a gold tassle and attached it to a glittery gold brad.  See how she's looking at that tassle and smiling?  So is my niece!  She's so happy to be graduating with honors because she has worked so hard to earn it!  The top of the template opens to put something inside, but I thought these would be very cute table decorations.  I may make more for her party!

 Here is the invation I made.  I used Maria's graduation picture and created this in my photo editing program.  I got the idea to place the number vertically from an invitation I saw online.  The pawprints on the bottom are from the Sign It stamp set.  Her school's nickname is the Bulldogs, so I had to add the paw prints!  I just love the way these came out!

Here they are together.  So cute!  I just wish I had some of that curly hair they used for dolls that I could put on my template.  She needs some hair I think!  ;-)

Like I said before, the entire design team is posting today, so stop by these blogs to see what they have to show you.

Thanks for stopping by today!  We have more inspiration coming from this release, so please stop by again!
