There IS life after graduation!



I have to admit that yes, I did enjoy graduation and I did shed many tears, but we all knew that was going to happen! Graduation may be over but not in my heart as I'm now scrapping some of the pictures that were taken for the event...
The first one was for a challenge @ Scrap Book Deals 4 U. It's for the Camp Rock Challenge. The requirements were that there had to be a picture of myself, and a nickname on it and also use a favorite color and a not so favorite color. Mine was titled Mammy and I hung it for display on the quilt that I made for Rick for his open house. I included on it: At graduation I kept thinking about when we brought you home from the hospital. I remember being so surprised that they left me and dad in charge of taking care of you! I thought it was a huge responsibility and it scared me. Then I turned around and there you were walking across that stage and receiving your diploma! How had this happened and where did the years go? Then I began thinking that I hoped that Dad and I had fulfilled our responsibility and not only take n care of you but instilled in you the things that we felt were important in life! I also smiled and hoped that I will always be Mammy to you!
The second lo was also a challenge but a sketch challenge designed by , I loved it! This one my husband did the journaling on and it reads: Rick, this hug is just as special as the
first time I held you. Someday you will
know how proud I am of you and all
that you have accomplished. You are
truly my bud. I look forward to the
next phase of your life and I’m sure that
you’ll make us all proud then as you
have now…Love Dad
He's also going to sign it once he gets around to it!
