CASology #83: Jump

I am playing along with CASology #83 today.  This week's cue word is JUMP.  
I  thought of all kinds of animals that jumped...frogs, deer, bunnies, kangaroos, but I wanted to make something a little different for this word.  I did a search of the Silhouette store which turned out to be a great place to look as I saw all kinds of ideas that were tagged with the word Jump.  Here is what I ended up with:
Who remembers hop scotch?  Probably only people around my age, but I hope kids still play this game.  I know I sure played it a lot when I was growing up.  I turned this hop scotch diagram into a graduation card.  The squares were cut on my Silhouette and I used Papertrey Ink's For the Graduate stamp set to add a graduation cap to make this card suitable for a graduation that is coming up this May.  I only hope the young lady I give this to has even heard of hop scotch!  More likely she will wonder what kind of weird robot I drew with a graduation cap on it's head.  The Way to Go sentiment is from Lil Inker Sunshine Sentiments.  So...hopefully you all remember what it was like to "jump" your recess away playing hop scotch, but if was fun!

I love it. I used to play hop scotch all day long when I was young. I even had one painted on the road in front of our house. What a fabulous trip down memory lane--triggered by your card. Thank you so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Oh, yes, I did think of hopskotch for this cue...and I'm so glad you did, too! I did not, however, think so creatively as to make it into a graduation card! Brilliant! I still draw hopskotch grids with chalk outside on the sidewalk with my nieces and never gets old! Thanks for joining us at CASology this week!
