PP351 - A Theme Challenge from Joanne

Hi everyone - Joanne here with this week's theme challenge! Firstly, thanks to everyone who played along with Nance's sketch challenge last week - wasn't that sketch awesome? So many great interpretations of it too. Onto this week's theme: we are almost at the end of the academic year here in the UK and so it's the perfect time for teacher thank you cards. It's also the start of exam results season: everything from Common Entrance Exams, to the 11 Plus, and universities awarding graduate degrees, followed by next month's GCSE and A Level results. 

Since our challenge is an international one and all countries have these things happening at different times, I thought I would broaden this week's theme to encapsulate all of these things. So whether it's a thank you for your favourite teacher or a message of congratulations, we would love to see them all in the gallery this week.

Check out the fantastic designs, as always, that the Design Team has created to inspire you, including the contributions of our two new guest designers, Annie and Jan, who sit alongside Deanne as our guests for the next 6 months. I can't wait to see what you create!

Challenge Rules:
  1. Create a NEW paper-craft project specifically for this challenge.
  2. Upload your creation to your blog with a link back to us.
  3. Please provide a direct link to the post featuring your challenge entry.
  4. Please link your card to no more than four challenges, TOTAL. Entries linked to more than 4 challenges, including ours, will be deleted without notification.
  5. Have fun!
