Graduation Photos Card

Hello friends.  Graduation has come and gone in South Carolina, but I find I am just now getting the graduation cards made - which means, YES, our checks are late going in the mail!  Our favorite graduate this year is my (technically Doug's) nephew, Jayme.  Jayme graduated last month in Cleveland, TN.  Luck for me, and ultimately Jayme, my Design team sister Mayra selected this week's Bitten By The Bug 2 challenge - and she chose a GRADUATION THEME.

I used four cartridges to make this card, Paper Doll Teen Scene,  Happy Graduation, Heritage, and Art Philosophy.  My graduates were cut using the girl and boy graduates on the Paper Doll Teen Scene cartridge.  I love the funky shape of the people on this cartridge!  The sofa and camera were cut using the Heritage cartridge.  The Happy Graduation phrase was cut with the Happy Graduation cartridge, and the label layers were cut using Art Philosophy.

I found the background papers in my scrap stash, but I thought both prints were great for this graduation photography scene.

This week I am hosting a "Girlfriend Save Me" night.  I COMPLETELY forgot to assemble the wedding favors so I put out a call for help and have a few people coming to help me on Tuesday.  I will also be getting back with the wedding caterer with final number, calling the florist for flowers for the Bridal Breakfast, and finalizing other details.  We are down to less than three weeks to go on Bethany's wedding.  Other than dropping the ball on the favor assembly (though all elements were ordered, printed, cut, etc), I think I have most of the other juggling balls in the air.   Oh... and Saturday Doug and I are going to North Carolina to pick up my mom.  We are going to worry about moving her furniture after the wedding.

Please remember to go by Bitten By The Bug 2 and to visit my DT sisters' blogs.  There is so much creative goodness in this Design Team and they have so much to teach and share!!!  Also, remember we do so enjoy it when you  join us in the weekly BBTB2 challenge!!
