Next stop, kindergarten!


DSCF6659I typed the sentiment in Word at 18 points. The font is Jester.

We’re two weeks into May and that means it’s time to get ready for graduation ceremonies. Here is an announcement that I made for a little guy that lives on my street who is graduating from preschool.

His favorite color, which also happens to be mine as well, is red, so I made the card base out of some red open cardstock I bought from Hobby Lobby.

DSCF6662The left side is a photo mat, and the right side is for the announcement.

His mom had a picture for the inside, so I used this colorful paper from the DCWV Nana’s Kids stack as a photo mat. And it just so happens that it matched perfectly. I think I’m going to have to buy another one of those stacks because I used both sheets.

Funny story, I had a picture of this on my iPhone and I showed it to my boss at Gap and she was like, “Will they be upset there is no D in kindergarten?” So, spelling is not a requirement to be the general manager of a Gap store! Her son just turned one, so she has 4 more years to get the spelling right. I digress!

Anyway, this week at Celebrate the Occasion the theme is graduation and even though I plan to make one or two more grad themed projects, I’m going to enter this fun card.

Hope you all like it. Have a blessed day!
