ConGRADulations!

These were totally CASE-ed from Michelle Wooderson's wonderful blog
   I'll admit to being a little swamped at the end of May each year.  About half the birthdays in our close family occur then, and this year we have a couple of graduations thrown in the mix! A shout out to my very accomplished niece, Ashley, who is headed off to add her talents and energy to the University of Maryland!  I'm excited to make some thank you notes for her!  
   It's my first foray into the Wonderful World of Washi!  My recent Target recon procured these tapes, and  I can tell already that it will be fun playing with them!  I also had fun with the Zig Zag and More background masking a white space, and making my own "faux washi" tape strips.  I plan to make some more by inking the separate patterns in the background with different inks, then cutting them into different widths!
  As noted above, I lifted this fun design from Ms. Mish Mash [I've always loved her blog name!] and it appeals to my inner cottage/vintage chic style in a bright way!  This is a great way to use scraps too!  
   Here's a couple more and a few I made for my daughter's birthday thanks too.  I wasn't kidding when I mentioned it's a big time of year in our family!  Wishing you a safe and happy weekend wherever you are!
p.s.  Thanks again Michelle!!
