CFC103 - Congratulations!
The challenge at CASual Fridays this week is Congratulations. At this time of year, and especially this year, congratulations means graduation. My son is graduating from Grade 8 this year (the day before his birthday - talk about a celebration!) and heading to High School in September.
I masked and sponged the green and yellow (his school colours) before embossing GR8 (I love the play on "Great" and "Grade 8") and the 2013 directly on the sponged panel (both using Kelly Purkey's Plain Jane alphabet). The all-important 'congratulations' is cut out with a Spellbinders label die, edged in Stickles and popped up.
That same son is away on a canoe trip with the Air Cadets this weekend. It has rained off and on ever since they left and since they're supposed to be sleeping in tents (I have no idea if there's any more permanent shelter at the lake they're at), I'm sure he will be coming home very, very soggy!
