Best in Class Celebration

Good morning Cricut Fanatics! Hope you are enjoying your summer so far.

This is Rita from Rita's Paper Obsession. Every year my boss recognizes our work unit with a luncheon celebration.  She comes up with a theme and it's my job to create her vision.  This year's theme was "Best in Class".  She wanted to see our accomplishments recognized with blue ribbons.  Here's our accomplishments highlighted on our conference room wall.

The project had to be quick and simple as I had a limited amount of time so I made the rosettes for the banner and ribbons using strips cut from card stock. 

The banner and letters were cut from the Birthday Bash cart.

I cut the leaf wreath on the ribbon from the Sweathearts cart and the stars are from George and Basic Shapes from gold poster board.

Our celebrations must include party favors.  My boss wanted everyone to have a blue ribbon.

I found 1 1/2 inch blue lollipops at the party store and decided to attach a smaller version of the blue ribbon to them.  The "Best in Class" was a computer image that matched everything perfectly.

Thank you for stopping by today.  May you have a wonderful summer full of memories worthy of scrapping!
