It's Graduation Time!

As May nears June it seems that school's are letting out and kids everywhere are graduating! You may remember that earlier this month my daughter Leah graduated from the University of FL. Well, in early June my youngest daughter Tiffany will be graduating from High School.

I have had the task of completing Tiffany's graduation announcements hanging over my head for a while now and I am happy to say that with a lot of help from Tiffany, we finally got them finished! Her school colors are Maroon and White, and her mascot is a Sponger! I know that is a little unusual, but the little town we live in is considered the Sponge Diving capital of the US and has close ties to Greece!

Unity Stamps came to my rescue again and offered the perfect stamp collection to help personalize and feminize the otherwise masculine school colors and logo!

Here is a picture of Tiffany's Graduation announcement...

The front picture shows the flourish stamp from Unity's January KOM called Love Etc. that I stamped in Amuse Black and also in Ranger Aged Mahogany. The flecked cardstock is from SU and the black cardstock comes from Recollections and the Maroon cardstock is from The Paper Co.

Here is a picture that shows the inside and the outside together...

On the top half of the inside I used the "2009" stamp from Unity's January KOM. The verbiage was typed on the computer using a font called Biondi.

We are very proud of Tiffany! She has plans to become a police officer some day and has been very active with Crime Watch at her school. She has been hired by a local Police Department in the Americorps Department where she will work along with officers as a community resource. In the fall she will begin her studies in pursuit of a degree in Law Enforcement.

Here is a recent picture of Tiffany at her Senior Prom! She is pictured here with two of the local Police Officers that she has worked with at school and in our community. They were on patrol the night of the Prom to keep the kids in check!

I have one more Graduation Card to share with you for now!

Our best friends Chad and Tiffani have a son Trevor who is graduating from Pre-K tomorrow. I didn't want to forget his great accomplishment, so I decided to make him a special card. He has waited a long time to be able to ride the big yellow bus to school like his big brother Tyler!
The card I made uses the Clean and Simple challenge CAS15 from Monday at SCS which was to use Black and White and one of the Bold Brights! I chose to use Real Red as my bold bright since Trevor's school color is red!

Here is the card that I made for Trevor...

The Fine Print: CS: SU (Real Red), GP (White), Recollections (Black); Stamps: SU (Shooting Stars, 2000), Congratulations Graduate (Not stated); Ink: SU (Real Red), Amuse (Black).

Have a wonderful evening and may our bucket be overflowing with endings and beginnings as is fitting for this time of year!

Amazing graduation announcements -- I can't believe you handmade all of them! That's definitely a labor of love and will only be appreciated more as time goes by. Cute pre-K graduation card, too; how thoughtful to celebrate that milestone!
