GRADUATION ~ Here We Come!

Hi Dear Friends
Yep...the time is fast approaching,
its almost time
 for all Seniors across this country
to walk down the aisle and graduate!

This weekend my family and I are going to
my nieces graduation ceremonies in Florida!
To say the least, we are excited for
this mini-vacation we are able to take.

What makes this one special is that my
daughter was born only 7 days after my niece was born.
They both ended up being only children
in our families...and as time
has gone on, they have been
able to cultivate a wonderful sister-like
bond. Which my sis and I are just
so pleased about.

I came up with an idea a few months ago and
finally found just the right sweet
graduate girl to make up for my
neice...I could not get over how
closely it represents how she looks...
so I thought I'd share what I came up with
instead of a card!
Isn't she just the sweetest figurine?
Her colors were Green and Gold and
they are wearing black gowns!
My niece has beautiful blondish
red hair, just like this doll.

I also did up a tag to go along with it instead
of the traditional card...
When I give it to her it will have a
check inside of the box.

Hope you enjoyed this and maybe
it gave you a great idea too!

If you are anything like me you are going to BAWL your head off. That MUSIC started playing and that was it! I was a gonner.

Now...I haven't forgotten about writing you back...just been so swamped. But I will...promise.

PS: Congrats to your girl.

Hope you have a great trip! My son's graduation is next Saturday, so I'll probably miss Pink Saturday. We have received invitations from five more young men. I don't know if we'll get to go to all of them. As you said, tis the season!

Hi Lorena,
You've been a busy girl. The figurine is sweet and I know your niece will love it! I will miss your tea today but I do understand completely. Summertime is a busy time for everyone and it will be interesting to see how things go over the summer. I do appreciate you stopping by, my sweet friend, and I hope you're enjoying your week.
