School's Out!

Whoops! I am all over the place this week, what with it being half term AND having a Bank Holiday on Monday.....I almost forgot to post today about the latest challenge over at For Fun Challenges! 

We are lucky enough to be sponsored this week by Di from Di's Digi Downloads, and the lucky winner will receive 5 digis of their choice from her fabby shop! What a shame I can't enter myself, I LOVE Di's digis!!! Lol!

We DID get to choose a digi to work with for our DT cards though (yay!) and I chose the adorable Graduation Bear.

Our theme this week is


We want to see your creations that put you in mind of the end of school/start of the holidays.

I followed the current Paper Take Weekly sketch #56.

I used my Papermania Colossal Paper Pack 'For Him' papers and Dovecraft designer paper pack.

I coloured the image with Promarkers and edged with brown ink.

The congratulations ticket was a freebie, and I used the base ticket to create the school's out one on the computer.

I added a couple of buttons and a ribbon from my stash to finish.

I am entering my card into a few challenges:
Make sure you pop over to the For Fun Challenge blog and take a look at the inspiration there too :) It seems most of my teamies went for the holiday theme, whereas I went for graduation as a mark of the end of school.....what will YOUR take on our theme be........? Looking forward to finding out!

Thanks for looking. x
