Hello everyone. It is Monday and that means it is time for the weekly Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge. This week's Cricut challenge cut (theme) was selected by my sweet Design Team member, Jaren. Jaren selected the theme of School Days. The School Days theme includes teacher gifts, field trip layouts, school programs, or, in my case, graduation.
I knew so many graduates in last weekends college commencements. So many relatives and children of friends were graduating from several different universities around the county. I would like to give a special shout out to my VERY impressive twin cousins, Ashley and Karissa. They graduated from Young Harris and NC State respectively. Each received special awards and each has been accepted into graduate programs, complete with fellowships, one at Emory and the other at the University of Tennessee. Congrats ladies.
With graduation on my mind I decided to try the Happy Graduation cartridge for this week's challenge. I chose this graduating owl, a cut I had never previously dealt with. I cut the owl in layers, editing the pieces as I went. I don't know about you, but I think the owl looks depressed. Clearly he did not graduate with the accolades of my cousins!! I told my husband that this owl is concerned because he does not have a job!!!
I added the two piece cut - the Congrats banner - to the front of my owl card. Though honestly, this guy needs a sign that reads "Have degree/ Need Job!"
Please go by the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog and check out the much better school projects the design team came up with. I promise that their projects do not look like they need prozac! Also, do think about crafting your own school project and joining us in this week's challenge. All of the challenge rules are on the sidebar at the BBTB2 blog.
