congradulations...



Hello and a big happy Wednesday!

Here's a fun grad card that I made for the girl:


The stack of books and the pencil are popped up.  

The Paper Smooches Smarty Pants set hasn't been inked up until now!




This girl of mine graduated from high school last night.  I'm pretty sure that I was an emotionally mess...all happy tears.


I seriously cannot believe how time flies.  It seems like (almost) yesterday that we brought her home from the hospital.  She was such thee fussy baby....to see her now, it's amazing.  She'll be attending the University of Washington, living on campus {cross your fingers she gets the housing she wants!} and going in as a sophomore!

Call me proud.
