Gr8 Job, Graduate!


Hello friends! Bonjour de Paris! I'm here with a pre-scheduled post as my daughter and I are on our highly anticipated trip to Paris and England. We flew out last Thursday and are spending the week in Paris. I've been to Paris a couple of times but it's Erin's first time. I'm so excited to show her all the sites! 

Although my son will be finished high school in June, for some bizarre reason, the school waits until October for the official graduation. Anyway, I'm all set now with the card I've made for him!!



The sweet little graduate is a file from Too Cute By Jessica's Graduation Pals set. Isn't he adorable (just like my son!)? I created the card base by cutting a regular A2 card and then using a Martha Stewart star border punch along the front, right edge. The mats were cut with the top layer embossed with stars.



The yellow "stitched" stars were cut with the fabulous star die in Craftin' Desert Divas' Banner Dies set. I used a few different stamps from the Short and Sweet Tags stamp set. For Woo hoo! and You Rock!, I used my marker to stamp the sentiments on two lines. Otherwise, it was business as usual!


Thanks so much for visiting today! Have a wonderful week!

Hi Kate, just dropping in for an overdue visit and you're not even home, rofl, next time I'll call first (aren't I funny today?). Hope you and your daughter have a WONDERFUL time on your trip!
And I agree, October graduation is very different, I'd think anyone that went away to University might not even be able to get back for it. Looking forward to summer, and hope you'll post some pics of the trip, take care,
{Hugs} Barb
