Bloggers Challenge - For the Grad

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Tag Challenge. This weeks challenge is For the Grad!  I also wanted to let you know, in case you missed my RC Challenge post earlier this month, that the Challenge at the RC Blog this month is "celebrations", so if your "For the Grad" project  also contains a "spooled" item, than be sure to link up here too, for a chance to win a Ribbon Carousel!

For my project, I created a Graduation Gift Card Holder - this is a sneak peek of my project for this month's Club CR8.  I'll edit this post with a link once Club CR8 goes live!

Our youngest son will be graduating from HS in two weeks!  Today he came home and said, he only has 4 days left of school, and is finding it a bit strange, because for the last 12 years, this is all he's known, get up and go to school.  While he has worked part time for the last year, he's right, he's gotten up and gone to school, and for four summers also took classes to get ahead.  He did earn a Scholarship and is all registered for Fall classes at the local college!

Here's a picture I took of Joe and my husband on Scholarship Night. Congratulations Joe, we are so proud of you!
