Class of 2011 (8th GR) graduate!!

SO proud that he graduated and completed his 8th grade year last night. Now off to high school!! A new phase in life as he gets closer to college - YIKES!!

It was a hot evening in that gym with only two commercial fans. Lucky that he listened and wore a short sleeved dress shirt - yeah, mom, you were right as he watched his classmates sweat in their long sleeves under those heavy musty gowns! LOL!! Ended with a wonderful dinner at our favorite Japanese restaurant - it was a good night!

Speaking of graduation...my oldest son is on the high school varsity tennis team and his team captain was graduating. So I whipped up a card, slipped some $$ in the pocket and off to the graduation party! I really liked how it turned out since the recipient was a guy, it works...right? The colors are their high school colors - had to include in there some way.

Congratulations by Margie Higuchi
Supplies: Cardstock: Core'dinations; Patterned Paper: Glitz; Stamp: JustRite Stampers; Ink: Tsukineko; Marker: atyou Spica; Dies: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S4-114 Standard Circles LG, S4-116 Standard Circles SM, S4-126 Classic Squares LG, S5-028 Nested Pennants); Adhesive: ScraPerfect (Best Glue Ever)

Inside the card, I created a pocket to hold the graduation money with a little "celebrate" accent and on the other side, I cut/embossed a white square edged in black ink for Taka to write a little note...not pictured because he was still writing! LOL!!

For those of you who are celebrating a special graduate in your life - CONGRATULATIONS!! Many, many successes in your future!!!
