There's a Senior in the House

My youngest son is graduating this year.  All I can say is "thank goodness"!  I was crazy enough to volunteer to make 40 table arrangements for his Senior Banquet.  As usual, I underestimated the time it would take for the project and ended up burning the midnight oil to get it done.  The banquet was this past Saturday.  The plan was to deliver the centerpieces at 4 p.m. for the final set-up.  Would you believe that I finished everything at 3 p.m.--talk about cutting it close.  Unfortunately, I also waited too long to really get after my Artisan Design Team entries and just couldn't get it all done.  It makes me quite sad, but I just keep telling myself that I can try again next year. 

Here are a few photos of the centerpieces and the assembly process.  I thought they looked pretty good for tissue paper, straws and glimmer paper.  I punched 320 scalloped circles, 320 circle punched numbers and too many stars to count!  I roped my older son into punching some of the stars and he asked how I was able to punch so many times without getting blisters.  The sacrifices we crafters make!

Thanks for stopping by!
