For those of you who are close to me, know my story/ to make a long story short...I have a son who's 19. I know you know my darling daughter as I always talk or post pictures of her. Well, my kid is leaving for college today and so I wanted to make a special card for him. I know he's an awesome and fantastic soccer player as well as a cute and wonderful kid, but he also loves to I decided to use surfing Ian for my image. I didn't know what to create, but ended up making another shaker easel.
here is what it looks like once the easel is up...the sentiment is computer generated and I punched out some flowers and added some pearl bling. I used the new DP from Imaginisce and I am loving the new satin ribbon from SU. I didn't take a picture of the next layer as right underneath the the bottom I created a card where I could write a special message to him.
As every mother's dream is for their child to be happy, successful and content with where they are and what they do and become...I am proud to say that I must have done something right as he's taking a step in the right direction for a better and brighter future!

“Build me a son, O Lord, who will be strong enough to know when he is weak, and brave enough to face himself when he is afraid, one who will be proud and unbending in honest defeat, and humble and gentle in victory.” - Douglas McArthur

Be Blessed,

What a wonderful card for you ds!!! You are a great mother and it shows! I'm sure it's hard to see him go off to college (wait, is he leaving the island?) nevertheless, it's hard to sometimes face the fact that they're growing up! Must be bittersweet...but I'm sure he'll do well in whatever he set his sights on and you'll always be proud of him! You are truly blessed!!

Congrats to your son who has decided to attend college after all the years of being nurtured by a wonderful Mom. You can be very proud of him as I'm sure he's proud of you and has turned to your guidance many times. It's hard when a child starts "adulthood" life, but he will be successful in all his endeavors. Your card is very nice and so appropriate for a guy who loves to surf. Have a great weekend Joy! Hugs, Cami
