For the Graduate

 Grade 8 graduations have always been a conundrum for me. While I am happy to laud academic accomplishments, I find many graduation messages a little inappropriate for a young teen. It's not like the 14 year old is embarking on a new career or defending a post graduate thesis. True, they are heading to 9th grade, usually at a new school but I prefer to have some fun with it.

Here are a couple of cards for the young grads that congratulate  on a lighter note.



This card was inspired by Julie Gilson - I loved the colours of Granny Apple Green & Pacific Point & the sentiment says it all. The Snailed It Bundle is retiring soon & the dies are discounted by 50%. This is a fun bundle with adorable images & snail mail references perfect for card making. Check it out HERE before it disappears forever.

Here's another from the May Paper Pumpkin kit that I think is a perfect send-off to the baseball fan heading to high school.


Here in Ontario we have been in lockdown for months with the kids learning virtually, without the sports & extra curricular activities to lighten the load. Here's hoping that out graduating g'son will get an outdoor, socially distanced celebration to mark his accomplishments & share some fun with friends.

I hope that your graduates get to celebrate safely & carry on to the next phase of their lives.

Cheers,
Arlene
