One Last Grad Card

I don't know if this happens to other bloggers but I forgot to make any cards for my own son's Graduation! Talk about feeling foolish....I had to steal some cards I had actually made for Martin's friends so guess who had to replace with more grad cards.
I love this little guy from the WOJ summer kit. The wooden slate leaves a great place for some sentiment. These are more scraps from SU. I used my nesties to cut out the layers and used Peeled Paint distress ink to distress the edges.


On the inside I create a small pocket to hold the gift card we are giving Kristen. For this photo I used one of Martin's wallet photos. He is such a handsome boy/man. We adopted him from the West Indies and has been with us since he was less thank one year old. He is extremely athletic and popular and has only missed 4 days of school from kindergarten to grade 12. I think he will really miss going to school ...not for the classes but for the friends. I know I will cry through the whole ceremony next week. He has had such a wonderful school experience and has made marvellous friends. I hope each one of them stay a part of our extended family...I love having them all dropping in. It seems like such a major milestone for me...I think I am beginning to fear the empty nest syndrome!
Guess I had best get going. Talk soon.
Hugs
Heather
