For the Graduate

Last night Rebecca was officially graduating from primary school. They had their big night, where they were all dressed up in beautiful gowns, had dinner with their school teachers from the past seven years and afterwards received their certificates during the ceremony.

A couple of weeks ago we got an invitation from Rebecca and were asked to RSVP in writing. The children had chosen their graduation colours to be purple and turquoise, which was being reflected in the decorations for the event. I created a card to accept our invitation using these colours as well.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Patterned Paper: SEI | Dies: Papertrey Ink + Spellbinder Nestabilities (Labels Eight) | Ribbon: Ribtex from Spotlight | Alphabet stickers: American Crafts Thickers (Giggles)

Because graduating from primary school is somewhat of a big event, I decided to make a card as a keepsake for Rebecca, which we gave to her last night. I chose turquoise again, as blue is Rebecca's favourite colour.

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper | Ribbon: Spotlight | Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink (For the Graduate, A Little Argyle) | Ink: Staz'On (Jet Black) + Stampin'Up (Turquoise) + Rangers Distress Ink (Antique Linen) | Rhinestones: KaiserCraft + Papermania | Punch: Fiskars (Uppercrest) | Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities (Scalloped Squares) + Papertrey Ink (Double-Ended Banners)

Despite the fact that the children had chosen purple and turquoise as their graduation colours, Rebecca wanted a red dress. Here's a picture of her and her best friend Lauren.

The two of them will be embarking on their journey to their new secondary school as of February 1st. But for now relax and enjoy your holidays.
