Well Friday June 8th is the big day. Eric graduates from Whitinsville Christian School. People have asked me how I feel about this and I say 'happy' but if I was honest I would also say 'surprised' only because it has come upon us all so quickly. My wise cousin Lin says 'you succeeded as a parent if you raised a self-sufficient child' and that is true, so we are happy and celebrating a milestone. I'm sure I'll have much more mixed emotions when we bring Eric to Clemson University in August, but this week, it's all about celebrating the class of 2012.
Eric's girlfriend of 1 1/2 years is also graduating on Friday. She loves the beach and is a darling young lady. I made this beach scene card for her graduation and used the scripture verse from Philippians because it is such great advise for anyone. Don't you think life is too short to think about some things? I do. I think the council here to set our minds on thinking about noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy things. It certainly helps me avoid letting my mind go wild on fear, uncertainty, doubt and other unproductive thoughts. That's why I love this verse for graduation.
This is my current favorite stamp set. I just love the possibilities and splurged and got the add-on accessories as well. You can check out their website below.
Now I have to get busy making Eric's card. Ugghh. Masculine cards are so much harder and I should not have procrastinated. Let's hope I'm not up past midnight working on his card. I have it to give him on graduation day and, as usual, there are a million things that need to get done after I get home from work tonight before I can hit the craft room.
Oh, and one last thing. This card is for the craft a scene challenge.
