Happy Wednesday All! We are rockin’ and rolln’ over here in Southern California this morning with the 5.0 earthquake that hit our coast. I did not feel it since I was on my morning walk, but those always bring on a bit of a buzz among the local folks.
Today over at Decorate to Celebrate, we are kicking off a new challenge with the theme of Graduation. Whether if it is your little squirt graduating Kindergarten or your kiddo graduating Medical School, it is cause for celebration and we would love to have you LINK up your project to share.
The design team has some great inspirations to kick off this challenge and this is what I made for my nephew who is graduation High School tomorrow! This is the last of the four boys my brother-in-law and sister-in-law have to walk across the High School podium. My nephew’s gift is music and he was honored with the Louis Armstrong Jazz Award this year, so I used that as a thread to my theme for his banner.
I cut the base of the banner using my Cricut (had to dust that baby off a bit). The cart was Country Life cut at 7 inches. I found some cool Lori Whitlock rosettes via the Silhouette Store and I cut those out at 2.8 inches. The musical notes were a cut from the Silhouette Store as well. Using some Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine, I added some shine to the base of the banners. Added some washi tape I got from Paper Issues and Pick Your Plum, I called it done!
Thanks for sharing a piece of “hats off to the Grad” pie with me.
