name cards and a concert
I don't know about you but those name cards that they want you to order with the graduation announcements are kinda silly. I mean, you put your child's graduation picture inside the announcement and your return address on the envelope so why the name cards? So four years ago when Miranda graduated, we decided to make our own unique name cards with the meaning of her name. Made it so much more personable.
When ordering Tyler's graduation announcements, we again decided not to order the name cards. But when I sat down yesterday to assemble Tyler's announcements and grad pics, I realized we had not made special name cards to put inside. But an idea came to my mind and I thought I would share it with you!
I dug out my photo clear corners. You can get them at Michael's for a couple bucks. Well, I only used two corners to adhere the graduation pic, so that they can see that you can pop the pic out. And then I placed it over where you would have inserted the name card. Can I just say, I'm liking my idea better than those silly name cards. But that's just me. You do what you like.
Oh and btw, our oldest son Shawn is graduating from college so we are having a combined "Thompson Brothers" graduation party! They had more fun shooting pics for the invitation. The chosen one was taken inside our van! Too cute!
Tyler had a concert last night at his high school. Here he is singing the Incubus song "Warning" and he blew everyone away!! He has this amazing voice and is so comfortable performing on stage. Shawn recorded himself playing the guitar for Tyler to sing with and oh my gosh!! Ok, I'm their Mom, but they are sooo talented! Randy and I could not have been more proud to see our sons collaborate in this way! What a fun night!
