It's Graduation Time!

Hello and Happy Tuesday! I would be happier if it wasn't so wet here in New England! All it has done is rain the last few days and they are saying rain for the rest of the week. I guess all the plants are loving it!

It is Tuesday and that means another fabulous challenge at
Going Grey with Scrap-Creations.
This week the challenge is Graduation. Graduation is such a happy time and a sign that summer is here and school is done. It is also means a lot to make a card for someone who is graduating. I made this graduation card and then added a frame to the back so it could be kept as a rememberence and put in a 3D frame later on.
