It's Graduation Time at Little Scrap Pieces

Hello Crafty Friends,
Today was a somber day for many people in our school district. We are facing severe budget difficulties and the future is looking glum as layoffs must be made. Unfortunately, the people that live in my community are not always supportive of education. They feel taxes are already too high or they don't have children in the system any more, so they shouldn't have to pay. Remember...I live in Florida and this area is retirement city. The current students must suffer the consequences.
Althought the budget is a depressing topic, graduation is right around the corner. Seniors last day was today and graduation ceremonies are next week. Yeah!
Little Scrap Pieces wants to honor all those graduating!
Here is my Design Team project...
 The sketch I used
 My husband gave this card to his niece since she graduated from high school this year. Her school colors were red, white, and blue.
Bo Bunny pattern paper
white and blue card stock
Happy Graduation Cricut cartridge ~ sentiment and cap
red ribbon
red and blue gems
Hope you will join us Little Scrap Pieces for our "Graduation" challenge.
Stay Creative,

  6. Great grad card! Same back home where my family lives. People think the taxes are high or they don't have kids in the district. They already laid off several and now they only keep teachers that can teach more than one subject. Most people want the school district to consolidate, but they complain their taxes are high now...sad :(


  7. Georgiana, I feel aweful about all the budget cuts in all the school districts across the country. It's the children that suffer. Your card is so wonderful perfect for any graduate. Karen
