Happy Graduation Day!

Last night Sarah graduated from the 8th grade. It was very emotional for me as usual I cried. I am a big baby at any event my kids participate in and it's not limited to special occassions....I'll cry at a volleyball game or church. I just get overwhelmed with the moment which is a good thing I guess it shows that I am fully present and taking it all in.

Anyway, the ceremony was beautiful and I'll post some graduation pics later. But for now here is the pic of the card that I made her. That Large JustRite Monogram Stamper is so perfect for personalizing any card. I was able to add the name of the school and the year using the small letters.

I have to be honest and tell you that I was a bit intimidated at first using thos small letters because they are so tiny but I am honestly addicted to those small letters. I have made a list of sentiments that I want to use for future cards. They are so versatile and a must have for your JustRite collection. I am really thinking that I need two sets of the small letters....told you I was addicted to those tiny letters. Oh the endless possibilites.

The base of the card is white with a layer of brilliant blue and I used the Nestabilities to cut my circle and scallop layers. I added some sheer organdy ribbon and accented with three brads. I kept the whole card very simple so she could add it to her scrapbook as an accent on the page.

Since I had my wood block loaded with those small letters I stamped off a dozen of the sentiments to make cards for the graduation parties she was invited to and for my teacher thank you cards as well. I am definately getting my use out of this personalized sentiment.
