Today, I have some other images from the store to share with all of you. October is a popular time for commencement. Do you know any grads who'll be receiving their diplomas this fall? I know of three in particular.
This past year, three of Scribbles Designs' beloved characters went to night school to upgrade their skills. Work in this economy is extremely difficult to find and one must continually upgrade their skills to remain competitive in today's market. It is no different for frogs and penguins. Let's see what Carl, Brr and Brrnice have been up to, shall we?
Brr decided that the best course of action was to enroll in an Air Conditioning and Refrigeration course. Since his natural climate is cold, he figured that this would be the best fit for him. While he did struggle a bit with the theory, considering how difficult it is for a penguin to take notes using a pen or keyboard even, it is a good thing that his memory skills are quite advanced. In the end he did reasonably well too, receiving a B+ as his final grade.
Carl, our favourite Casanova, figured the industry he'd be best suited for would be translation, serving as a translator in his local consulate. So, Carl decided to spend his time learning French. You see, it is a fallacy that all frogs are French. While he did know a few phrases such as, "Mon petit coeur", "Je t'aime", "tu est jolie c'est soir", and
Brrnice, Brr's darling wife, also felt it important to upgrade her skills too. With the baby a little older now, and before any more baby Brr's come onto the scene, it was the absolute best time for her to go back to school. She decided to go into the food industry with a specialty in making sushi. Brrnice is a phenomenal cook to begin with and has a way with fish so this was the perfect placement for her. Brrnice also did quite well, managing to get an A overall. Oh and we're all invited to a celebration in honour of the grads and Brrnice has promised some vegetarian sushi for me and any other veggieheads out there!
Brrnice managed to remember the camera and here are some of the snapshots she got:
This one is of course their graduation cap...
This pic is of Brr, all dressed up for the occasion with his cap on...
Brrnice managed to snag a fellow graduate to take a snapshot of all three of them...
Now our fearless leader Sandy is so talented, that she has converted all three of these images into digital designs, just so that you can have a chance to buy a commemorative picture from this special occasion. If you click on each of the images above, they will take you to their locations in the store.
So many digitals, so many possibilities!So if you know of any students receiving their diplomas this year or even in the spring, why not pop over and purchase one or more of these awesome images. A portion of the proceeds will be put into trust for Brr, Brrnice and Carl, just in case they don't find work quickly. This way there will be a little extra money for them to draw on during the difficult times.
