It’s been over a couple of months since school let out for the summer and I’m so very proud to say that my oldest daughter graduated from her College program after 3 years of hard work, perseverance, and much determination!  You all know the struggles she’s had this past year and a half  with her illness (and if you don’t, click on the label in the Blog Archives to the right and select “anorexia” to read a bit about her story) and I’m so proud she persevered despite that obstacle and graduated with … wait for it … High Honors & a 3.97 grade point average (highest one can get is a 4).  I don’t know where she gets her smarts from but it certainly is not me, lol. 



I made this card to celebrate the occasion and thought it turned out pretty cute considering how little time I’ve spent in the craft room lately.

Speaking of little time in the craft room, I have joined some blog hops to hopefully help me get my mojo back and get into the swing of things again.  The first one is at the beginning of August so keep an eye out for that!





I guess that’s about it for now.  I’ll be back tomorrow with a freebie so make sure to check back to grab that.  Thanks so much for sticking around in my absence.  I know I have been saying this a lot this past year but I really do hope to get back to blogging more regularly again.  I’m really hoping those blog hops work for me!

Take care and enjoy the rest of this beautiful, sun-shiny day (well, at least it is here).
