A Purple Graduation!!!

Good Morning Everyone, Happy Wednesday!!!!! Today I wanted to share with you a project I made for Blackleaf Studios this week!!! I decided for my project today to use one of my favorite school colors...I just LOVE purple and I don't use it near enough!!! There is only one school that I know of in our area that has purple..OOO how I wish these were my school colors...LOL!!!!

I found this REALLY cute box that is a Grad Cap..I just knew this box had potential...So I used some silk ribbon to wrap around it. I also rolled up a check and tied it with ribbon to look like a diploma..Wouldn't this be a cool gift to give someone for graduation????....You can of course close the box and they would have a check or of course you could roll money the same way!!!

I couldn't wait to get this CUTE Grad Bear Set by Blackleaf Studios in action again. This time I used the digi form of this set...You can find this darling set HERE.



Hope you enjoy my project today!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope everyone has a fabulous Hump Day!!!
Here's the Recipe
  • Images - Cap and Diploma and SUPER CUTE GRAD Bear BlackLeaf Studios - colored with copics and cut out
