Happy Grad Hat

Good morning. Before I get to my post today I wanted to share a project and a few photo's with you today. Nothing says time flies like having kids. My very close friend came across this picture of the kids at Disney World in 2008. Look how young they are, on my! I of course cried when I looked at this. Not from being sad, but from how much they have all grown in just a few short years. 7  Years doesn't seem short to most, but short if you ask me. Especially since "M" just graduated from Highschool (With Honors) and her AA Degree. We have watched her grow into a beautiful, God fearing young woman over the years and we couldn't be more proud of her! 

Now look at them... This is at her Graduation party. Look at how the each have grown! My time with them is precious and I am cherishing every minute I can. They say... enjoy it while you can! In 5 years I will be taking another photo at the boys graduation. Who knows what that photo will look like.  :-)  

For fun I created a graduation hat shaped box to hold the money we planned to give as her gift. I have a Grad hat Tutorial if you would like to create your own. The inside is using Big Scripts that is centered to show between the rolled up $5 bills she is getting. hee hee  This turned out fun and she loved it. Check out the Power Poppy Blog's new Power and Spark Challenge this month! Be sure to play along!
