Graduation Invitations

Well, I'm finally getting around to posting a picture of the invitations I made for Amanda's Graduation Party. I used Primary Blue card stock (on sale at Michael's for .17 per 12 x 12 sheet!). The graduation paper is from A.C.Moore. The diploma is a Studio G $1.00 stamp from A.C.Moore and is adhered to the invite with pop dots. I started with a piece of card stock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. I hope you can read my primitive template for the rest of the details.
For the picture, I put a plain piece of white card stock in the invitation, but the actual inserts have the party invite details printed in blue on white card stock cut at 3.6 x 5. Amanda will be having a pool party/barbeque. My brother has the most awesome backyard! All of the boulders and rocks came from the back of his property. He designed everything and hand-picked each and every rock. This picture does not do it justice at all.
Has anyone looked for graduation paper this year? I went to four Michael's, two A.C.Moore's, and one LSS. Out of the seven stores I checked, only one Michael's and one A.C.Moore had graduation paper. And, the selection was very slim. What's up with that?
Thanks for stopping by. I wish you a very crafty weekend!

This is a very nice graduation invitation and I think your template pattern has all the information.

Your brother's yard/pool looks fabulous.
