Graduation Day

It was a very busy day for us on Wednesday 17 December as my daughter turned 21 years old and she also graduated from AUT. She received a Communications Degree with a major in Digital Media and a minor in Creative Advertising. The weather did not play the part for us and there was torrential rain for most of the day. Fortunately, this didn't dampen our mood or enthusiasm as we watched Nicole walk across the stage and receive her degree. We're very proud of her as she's worked hard these last three years and achieved awesome results. 

This is the card that I made:

I love that little owl and don't use the punch as often as I should..

Stamp: Well Scripted (retired)
Card: Whisper White, Basic Black, Slate Grey, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana
Ink: Coastal Cabana
Tools: Owl Builder Punch, Big Shot, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Chevron EF, Piercing Tool and Mat 
Accessories: Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, Whisper White Bakers Twine, Mini Brad, 

We've had a busy time of it lately but it's been lots of fun - I love organising parties and celebrations and have enjoyed every minute of Nicole's birthday and graduation. Now that they're over with, we're now able to concentrate on Christmas. We're all going to be down in Palmerston North to be with family. I arrived down on Saturday, Bridgette and Kyla flew down the day before and Nicole arrives on Wednesday. I love the fact that my daughters are spending another Christmas with us. I know the time will eventually come when they'll be with their own families, partners or friends, but for the time being I'm very grateful for time we have together. 

Have a great week everyone and enjoy the countdown until the big guy arrives :-)
