It's that time of the year....graduations galore!

Hard to believe, but I'm posting again just a mere 3 days after my last post. And just to show that miracles never cease, I played with paper tonight and made a card!

I'm not really a fan of the green and gold combination, but its Bri's grade school colors! I used my Silhouette studio software to trace an image I found online. I just love this little jumping girl and her high heels! I printed the sentiment onto another piece of the gold/yellow paper and threw a little bling on by adding a jump ring as a bracelet and a couple sparkly gems. The paper is all from Club Scrap, but I honestly don't know what kits.

I'm linking this up to the Freshly Made Sketches blog for their sketch challenge #87.

Thanks for looking!

Ok, this is embarassing! I haven't posted since when????

Life sure can get busy, that's all I can say. However, I finished a full semester of World Civilization and got an A for my efforts, so that's good. Inching my way toward a degree. Someday...

I just started a new job (which was also a promotion!), so that's awesome!

Yesterday, I volunteered at the CF Great Strides Walk in Cincinnati. The rain held off during the walk and I heard we raised over $230, that's really awesome!

In addition, I've been crafting with a bunch of different & new-to-me mediums lately, but I haven't been sharing, so maybe i'll try to get a few of my creations posted. "Statement" jewelry seems to be all the rage and I really love it all, so I tried my hand at making a couple necklaces using recycled tshirts. These are both available at my Etsy shop if you're interested.

Of course I love all things purple, so this one might be hard to sell!

and here's a pink one here:
