The blog hops this year will all have 'Cruisin' in the title. The first one is called, "Cruisin' For Special Occasions." As our blog hop leader, Robin, noted, the reason many folks go on a cruise is to celebrate something important.
I have only been on one cruise; the trip was a gift from my mother, to celebrate my graduation from university. My dad didn't go with us, because he really isn't big on travelling. It was one of those, 'Go on a trip in lieu of throwing a party' things. Really, I think Mom just wanted to go on a cruise. And I am glad she did. We did the round trip seven day Vancouver to Alaska voyage and I loved pretty much all of it.
I had a hard time deciding what to do for this hop. The one ocassion we all tend to celebrate is birthdays, and I wanted to step outside my box a bit. So instead, I'll show you a few graduation cards. That is rather appropos today, as I know that in the U.S. it grad time for many high school students. Our students attend until the end of June, but it is prom season. My niece's (well technically cousin) prom is tomorrow (Saturday) night & I am so looking forward to seeing her & her boyfriend all decked out. We're going down to the waterfront to do family photos. Please pray the rain holds off....
Although I love the colours of the Rich Razzleberry card the most, I didn't actually cut the paper correctly on that card so I don't like the layout as much as the others.
Now that budget time is over at the school district, I expect to have more free time. I have a whole bunch of cards that are already made that I'm looking forward to sharing. I went to a crop a week or so ago & I had a fantastic time.
Hop on over to VC Rocks to see the rest of our Hoppers' creations!
