#TGIFC03 Theme - Congrats Grad

Welcome back for week Three!!  Thanks for the awesome response on last week's sketch challenge.  With nearly 50 entries, you sure made it difficult to pick a winner!  In fact, we almost had a 3 way tie!  But eventually after a long night of intense arguments friendly discussion, we were able to select a winner...and this week it is:  Chantal de Kaste!  Check out her project on our Winner's Circle Page!  Chantal, don't forget to grab the winners button for your blog! We will be posting our runners up on our Facebook Fan Page too so stay just might see your card featured!

Onto the challenge...

This week we have a theme-based challenge:

I've realized and learned a few things since having started being a part of this international group.  First of all, "TGIF" doesn't translate well into other languages... Lol! I never thought about it before, but it makes perfect sense for our international players, TGIF started from "Thank God It's Friday" but can be adapted in many ways; one of our favorites is "Thank Goodness It's Fun."  
Now that I am more aware of potential translation situations, I am also thinking about cultural traditions.  Because I cannot be too cautious, I would like to explain the theme for this week just in case there is a culture or language barrier... We are looking for projects that celebrates and/or congratulates a student that has finished their year/time at school.  It can be for a child moving from grade to grade, a teenager finishing high school, a University Graduate, etc.  Projects can range from a card to a gift card holder to a gift...hopefully this helps.  Here is some added inspiration from our design team:  


 Off this week...Fun in the Sun!!!
