It is time for another InStyle Stamps "Over the Hump Blog Candy Giveaway".  Since June is a time for graduations, that is our theme for this month's challenge. 
My youngest son "graduated" from Kindergarten this year ~ I can't believe how fast they really do grow up.   So for my graduation card I chose Johnny and colored him to look like Trevor.  To personalize this even more, I made the background paper using the school logo and of course the school colors.  Brilliant Blue from SU is the school color for my kids, and it will be all through high school, so I am really going to miss this one ~ I don't know why they had to retire it.  If you know of a good substitute, please let me know.   
We'd love to see what you come up with for the grads in your life, so go visit the InStyle Stamps blog to link your project for a chance to win a fantastic prize. 

Remember by shopping through this link: InStyle Stamps you will receive an automatic 5% discount on any stamp purchase you make.

It looks like today is going to be a great day so I think we are off to go strawberry picking ~ the last two days have been rainy so we haven't been able to go. 

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Patterns - Sketch
Just Us Girls - Use a digi image and or papers (I did both)
Totally Gorjuss - For the Boys
Creative Inspirations - Monochromatic
Magical Crafts - Something for a Male
