iGraduated

Yesterday, my sweet little man graduated from Kindergarten.  I think someone must have hit the fast forward button because I can't believe it's already June!!   He's had such a great year and I'm so very proud of him.  Let me tell you, people....Kindergarten is HARDCORE!!   Last week, I spent an entire day in his classroom and got to experience his day right alongside him.  Those kids have full schedules that are jammed packed with learning and activities...they go FULL-THROTTLE the entire day.  I was so exhausted that afternoon when we arrived home from school that I immediately fell asleep on the sofa...I'm not cut out for Kindergarten!!  LOL


Here's the card I made, Nathan to celebrate his graduation.  I started with a Smokey Shadow cardstock base and layered with Taffy cardstock using my Perfect Layers tool.  The There She Goes - ConGRADulations stamp set image was colored with Copics, cut out and then popped up using foam tape.  I chose designer papers from My Mind's Eye (Oliver) since these were his schools colors.  I stamped the sentiment on a fishtail banner and added the year using MFT's By the Numbers die-namics.  

I'm a little sad that this chapter on his "babyhood" is coming to a close, but he's so ready to be a big kid.  And for the first time he's about to experience the magic that is Summer - all of those lazy days filled with fun and most importantly NO School!!   As for me?  I'm not gonna lie about how excited I am about getting to sleep in today!!  ;)  


As a previous TSG Trendsetter I'm always looking to play along with their challenges and since I kept things pretty close to CAS (Clean and Simple) - I'm going to enter this card into the TSG CAS Challenge going on right now.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
