Graduation Scroll Card

Hello everyone!  Thanks so much to all of the awesome friends who joined us for the It's a Party Blog Hop!  There's still time to enter for a chance to win a Joy's Life stamp set of your choice.  Just go to yesterday's post for more details.  For today I have another Joy's Life DT project to share with you.  The challenge this week was to make something for a graduation...  Recently a family friend of mine graduated from college, and my niece, Chloe, is graduating from Kindergarten very soon!  We only have a couple of school weeks left!  I can't believe that I have to say goodbye to another bunch of students!  Each year I think I will be able to say good-bye without getting emotional, but I just can't do it!  It's bittersweet, that's for sure!  :)

I don't know if I will be giving this to my friend, or to my niece...  Hmmmm....  I think it could work for both, but I don't know!  :)  Here's a picture of me and my niece doing some gardening last week...  She came over and helped me plant some flowers and then she spent the night...  We had so much fun! :)  I'm also excited that she is the top reader in Kindergarten, and she will be in my class next year!  It's so special that I get to teach my niece!!!!

Super cute idea that can be used for a girl or boy! Yes, it is bittersweet! My nephew graduated yesterday and it's hard to watch them "leave the nest"! Should be lots of fun watching your niece grow throughout the next year!! Thanks for sharing this awesome card!

Awesome card for any graduation Amy! I love the pic of you and your neice, so cute!! Time has a way of flying by doesn't it?! I never liked saying goodbye to the students either and always had a hard time keeping my emotions in check. lol We had a son graduate from college too-I just can't believe it! lol
