It's Graduation time! My youngest daughter just graduated from 8th grade this week (congrats Abby!) and the highschoolers in our school district will graduate tomorrow afternoon. Mother's Day weekend the local University kids graduated. It's happening all around here.
One of my nephews graduated today (congrats Nick!), one graduates June 1st (congrats Jack!) and I have a niece graduating June 9th (congrats Jaclyn!). Lots of kids graduating and moving to their next stage in life.
I wanted make the 8th graders life just a little sweeter so I made them a little treat I could give each one as I congratulated them and welcomed them to their next season of life.
I made them with the 1" x 8" cello bags #124134 filled with colored candies that are close to their school colors of blue, red and silver gray. I finished them off with coordinating colored cardstock stamped with the set called "Blue Ribbon" #125979 (wood mount) or #125981 (clear mount) I also added some bling with the Silver Glimmer Paper #124005 punched with the scallop circle punch #119854 and added a rhinestone from the Rhinestone basic jewels pack #119246 to just finish it off perfectly.
Here is a picture of me and my silly graduate! Congratulations Abby!
