A Photo Booth Fit for a Graduate

Welcome back!  I really mean it!  I have finally started to receive email notifications from my blog again!  If you thought I haven't been posting for a while, you might be surprised to look back a few weeks to see that indeed I have been!  The service that sends out email notifications stopped functioning a while back, and, well, I just didn't have time to deal with it because my daughter was graduating.  I was a LITTLE bit busy making this :


AND these...


Don't get me wrong, I WANTED to figure it out, but I don't know the little elf who delivers my mail very well, so there was no way I was going to be able to convince him.  ;)   I had SUCH a fun time making this photo booth for Kaylee and her friends to use at her graduation party.  They really did have a fun time with it, too!


It was not very expensive to make either!  I needed foam board, crepe paper, cardstock, adhesive, ribbon, removable wall hooks,  balloons, Liquid Glass, and long sucker sticks.


The lettering is from the Cricut Artiste Collection.  The fun camera and film strip cuts are found on Artbooking as well as the banner shape.  Some of the fun props are found on other cartridges like Paper Doll Dress Up and Create a Friend.


I figured everyone would have their own camera these days, so no need to supply one!  ;)


I used the Close to My Heart Chalkboard Vinyl to cut a fun reusable word bubble from Artiste...


Make sure you plan ahead for this type of a project!  I started two weeks ahead of time to be sure to get it all ready in time.  :)  Visit my Pinterest board for this and other great graduation party ideas!
