So this week's challenge at Lollipop Crafts is an easy one... ANYTHING GOES! Head on over to the blog to see some awesome eye candy! A traditional custom is to present your Sensei with a thank you gift at the belt award ceremony. This is the card my son wanted me to make for his Sensei...
Very simple layout. Karate Ian colored in his Sensei gi's colors, red cardstock stamped with "thanks" as the background, and "Arigato" cutout is from Jenny!
Cameron started this journey when he was in kindergarten, and throughout all these years (he's only 11), he continued to climb each step and grow along the way, to finally reach this amazing achievement! His Sensei says he is the youngest of the dojo to obtain a Jr. Black Belt. We are so very proud of him! I decorated a couple of chipboards with the same image, colored it to represent his gi and new belt, and a congrats sign for his favorite cake... OREOS!!!
Let me just say that this past month, he trained so hard in order to pass this test, I was so stressed out just watching him train. When Saturday morning came, I think I was more nervous than he was! The testing didn't start until 2pm, so the wait was just agonizing! I'm so glad that he performed so well, and I can see the determination in his face during the whole TWO HOURS!
Okay... that's enough for me today. I will share the other celebration we had on Saturday night on another post! Head over to Lollipop Crafts to see more of the DT wonderful inspiration, and hope you can join the fun!
