It's time to Celebrate the Occasion! Graduation Challenge

It's a Graduation Challenge this week at Celebrate the Occasion! I really have to apologize to my regular followers, because in my opinion, this is probably the worst card I have ever put together. And it really, really does NOT meet my standards!! It's too plain, but I didn't have the time or the crafting mojo to fix it the way I wanted to!! I do like the idea of the card, and I think it would be great for something like a Kindergarten graduation. I did keep my gypsy file that had everything out on the mat, so maybe someday, I will cut it again and fix it into somethin' special!! You never know! I do hope that I get my mojo back soon, because my type A personality can't stand posting something that I don't really like!! Lol!



Recipe:
Cricut Cartridges: Sesame Street Friends, Paper Doll Dress Up, Just Because Cards
Cardstock: DCWV Citrus Stack, Stampin' Up!
Stamped Sentiment: Stampin' Up!

Thanks for looking! Now, create something for that smart cookie in your life and link it up over at CTO! You have until Sunday, May 8th!
