Graduation Card

Last year was a big grad year for us. We had a grade 8 and grade 12 grad both a few weeks apart. It was wonderful and nostalgic time. It's hard not to tear up when your baby is leaving high school and moving on to university. But it was almost worse for the grade 8 grad for me. These kids had been together since they were 4, and here they were teenagers, moving on to high school.

This year brings a few friends graduating. Here's the first of my grad cards. This is based on this weeks' challenge at the CAS-ual Friday Blog to make a CAS grad card.



The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug, decorative label punch is from SU, ribbon is from Offray, grad cap is from Recollections, letters are from Making Memories.

Here's to a wonderful Graduation season!
