Graduation, life and gasp… a card!

Oh me, oh my, I finally did it!!! The grad ceremony, for a lack of better words, was rather crappy. It was raining just moments before I started my the walk, but luckily the rain stopped during the actual ceremony. I was so relieved because we (graduates, professors, family and friends) had to sit outside for about 2 hours through long speeches and approximately 500+ graduates. I am so thankful that both my parents could attend as well as the bf and a couple of friends.

While I have been MIA from the online community, I have been super busy with real life matters. I find that my weekends are absolutely precious and so many errands need to be done. If it is not errands, it is visiting this friend, or that friend. So on it goes… I was away for a week between July 18-23 to visit the bf in Ontario. I was able to stop by Cherished Scrapbooks and picked up a few Bella stamps as well as a really neat set of Hero Arts sentiments. I have been wanting those particular stamps for awhile. I also picked up $40 worth of crafting supplies at a Dollarama. Now when you think about paper crafting supplies, $40 doesn’t sound like much, but its a LOT when you spent it at a freaking dollar store! lol. Needless to say, I got a lot of neat embellishments. *insert big grin here* I am heading up to my parent’s place this long weekend (in Canada). They do not have internets, so I will definitely not be around… does that matter, I was MIA for a whole 2 months! lol I am going to try and play catch up as much as I can before though. Expect major spamming in the next little while.

Lastly, I did get to work on a few things here and there. I have taken photos of all my new cards and projects and will be posting them gradually over the next little while. Don’t want to give you toooo much Thanh, need to space it out a little. Here’s a grad card I made for one my gf’s. She is not one for tradition, so I tried to make her the most obnoxiously bright card I could come up with.
The layout is from the June Page Maps. Love this site, they do all the hard thinking work for me. πŸ˜‰ Simple card, for a simple girl like me… (or that’s what I keep telling myself).

Supplies Used:
Limited Edition Quickutz Stars, CTMH Atomic Number stamp, Doodlebug paper, Bazzill cs, SU paper piercer, Black SU ink, Stickles glitter glue
