 Congrats to the Class of 2021 !!

What a rough year you all had. Here's to never having a school year like that again!!! On another note, I graduated high school way baccckkkkkk, LOL 1975! Yikes  We were still wearing bell bottoms, and spread Peace and Love!!

Here is my project for A Perfect Time To Craft challenge blog! Thanks to our sponsor this month Bug A Boo Stamps!! I had a blast walking down memory lane as I created a grad card with my alma mater colors and mascot! 

After creating my folded card, I stamped my mat with paw prints to represent our mascot the Black Tiger,  Added gold ribbon as you guessed it, Black and Gold are our colors. I may 2 copies of the grad cap and diploma from Bug A Boo, I carefully cut out the grad cap and colored it with a black marker and highlighted the white with a white Posca pen. Using a fine black marker I went over the outline on the diploma, I adhered the colored cap to the diploma and the tassel  that I left white, because mine was white!

Thanks for stopping by,

Wild West Rodeo Queen

 Howdy Partner!

I always wanted to be aa cowgirl! My maternal Grandma made me a cow girl outfit when I was 5, and let me just say, I wore it till it was thread bare! I look on back of photos of me wearing my cow girl get up and it makes me smile. 

Over at  Gecko Galz  we are celebrating the Wild West, I created 3 shrines and a Rodeo Queen Winner ribbon to share with you today.

I used Rodeo Gal collage sheets 1 & 2 to create both the shrines and the ribbon.

I used 3 wooden shrines from the Dollar Tree, painted them navy. From there it was a matter of embellishing!! I love how they turned out!

Lastly here is my Rodeo Queen Ribbon!  I die cut a large snow flake medallion from Tim Holtz, sandwiched layers together, completed the front and embellished!

I hope you enjoyed my Wild West projects,

See you next time
