Just stopping by...

In case you have been wondering what I have been up to that has decreased my posting frequency, we've been busy between illness, milestone birthday celebrations, graduation preparations, and much more.

Warning: Proud Mom brag ahead!!!

We had the pleasure of attending our girls' high school annual awards assembly tonight. Our dear daughter who will be graduating soon was recognized as an upcoming summa cum laude graduate AND as a President's Academic Excellence Award recipient. She was so very proud to be recognized by our President for her hard work!

We finally have mailed out invitations to graduation and to her open house celebration! Whew!

I have been working on a handmade photo collage as well. Do you know how hard it is to narrow down 18 years of a beautiful child's life into a collage to fit a 20" x 24" frame? LOL

So, all of that keeping us hopping, plus the everyday life of work, school, and laundry, I don't have much in the way of new art to share.

Here is something to fill the space in an artistic sort of way, a sympathy card I made for a co-worker:

Project Supplies:
Stamps: D1476 Card Chatter-Sympathy set
Paper: X5812 Wings Creative Basics
Cardstock: Kraft, Juniper, Cocoa, and Colonial White
Inks:  Cocoa
Embellishments: Juniper satin ribbon from the Wings Creative Basics and Z1372 Green Buttons from the Green Button Assortment
Tools: "Wishes" how-to books, Scallop Circle Punch, Micro-Tip Scissors, Foam Tool, Paper Piercer, Spritz, 3-D Foam Tape, and Glue Dots

Have a wonderful day!
