Graduation Time...

...Mililani High School...
I didn't think I would be making any cards this year for graduation...but low and behold I have two kids that I know that are graduating this year! does that mean I am old or what? lol! I didn't have too much time to prepare as this one...who's graduated from Mililani High School... they graduated on Sunday...I only found out the day before...yikes! so I made a fast and simple card. thanks to Donna for showing us how to use nesties to make fast and cute cards! I just used a sentiment and added the tassel to give it the effect of "graduating".
here's the side view of what it looks like...
I also made a lei with the "nani" length. those of you who make these leis with a straw know what I am talking about. I used gold and brown...these are the colors of Mililani. it really turned out pretty nice. I better run out and go buy more gold. it really looks nice with other colors.
Happy Graduation...Congratulations to those who are or have children that are graduating! what a blessed moment for all of you...till tomorrow: “I hope your dreams take you... to the corners of your smiles, to the highest of your hopes, to the windows of your opportunities, and to the most special places your heart has ever known.”


Be Blessed,
