Congratulations 2011 Graduates!!!

 

Hand Stamped Sentiments – Graduation Theme Challenge

  

This theme was a challenge for me as I could not come up with some WOW card or idea.  I finally found a stamp set (“Sense of Time”) that seemed like the perfect one to use. 

This past week, I had the pleasure of meeting my friend Sandra’s granddaughter Alexandra who is from New Jersey.  Alexandra had never stamped before and wanted to see what it was all about especially since she saw all of Sandra’s wonderful cards that she has created.  What a wonderful & beautiful young lady; and this year is her Senior year.   The excitement she had for this special year — her last year in high school — and how excited she is for graduation and to start her new life as a college freshman.  Ta Dum!! finally an idea.   For this challenge I created a graduation card but also made a 6×6  scrap page using Night of Navy, Brushed Gold and Very Vanilla cardstocks.  And just by mere chance, the colors just happen to be Alexandra’s school colors.  So this scrap page has gone home to New Jersey with Alexandra.  

This is the best part of being a demonstrator.  I get the opportunity to share what I love with others and help them create wonderful memories.   I had a wonderful time stamping with Sandra and Alexandra. 

So here is the scrap page and graduation card I created.
