Challenge #230 - Graduation/New Beginnings w/Mo Image

The month of May is passing by quickly and it's time for our next challenge here at Mo's Digital Pencil.  This one will last for three weeks so you have plenty of time to play along.
We had some great entries for last weeks "Whimsical Characters" challenge and this weeks theme leaves lots of room for interpretation, so I think you'll like it.

The Facebook team and all the clubhouse members are having lots of fun sharing and learning over at the Clubhouse FB page.  Here's a little plug for it in case you haven't checked it out yet.

Bronte & Bella's Clubhouse...or Bella & Bronte's Clubhouse...(what can we say? They like equal billing!)

If you haven't joined yet, please come on over!
Lots of fun and inspiration and encouragement and tutorials and even occasional freeeeebies!

Our lovely Elaine is our hostess for this challenge and she has given us a theme of...

"Graduation/New Beginnings"
(It's pomp and circumstance time or maybe a new baby, new marriage, new home, new pet....the possibilities are endless)

As usual the team has created some wonderful inspiration projects with Elaine's theme to share with you AND we have a wonderful and very talented Guest designer with us this week, Jen Leeflang.

  1. Do we have to have a blog to enter!

  2. Great question, Kath! The answer! You do not have to have a blog to enter Mo's challenges!! If you are on Facebook, you can post your card there and then link it here to the challenge blog. I've written a pretty simple (I think) tutorial on how to do it! Here's the link to my tutorial:
