Our daughter is finished high school!

Well our third daughter has now graduated high school, she started in a public school, then after Grade 2 we switched her to a Christian school, as the school closed last year, she opted to have us homeschool her for her final year of school.  She finished with a 3.64 GPA over her 4 high school years and we are very proud of her!  She has decided not to further her education and work, she will be living at home until the fall and working locally and then moving to the big city to seek out work. 

I made her a graduation card for the day of her graduation ceremony, which we held very casually in our home on Good Friday.  We had a BBQ with about 20-25 people attending as well as a few short speeches and the presentation of her diploma.  I used the Graduate Gilly image from Prairie Fairy Designs to complete her card, the sentiment was from Go Graduate by Stampin' Up.

Challenges I am entering:

Bunny Zoe's Crafts - ribbon or twine
Kaboodle Doodles - celebrate new life
Make It Monday - anything goes
There She Goes - ribbons
Corrosive Challenges - heavy metal
One Stitch at a Time - use a digi
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - make a joy-ful card (something celebratory)
