What a day! Tomorrow our oldest granddaughter graduates from high school plus receives her AA Degree. She is so excited. This is a great accomplishment for a 17 year-old and we are very, very proud of her. Today she had graduation practice and ended up falling off one of the podiums, and at the moment, we have been told she badly sprained her ankle. We have to wait for a radiologist to read the xrays to see if it is broken. Her ankle is very swollen and hurts a great deal. We are hoping she will be able to attend graduation tomorrow to receive her diplomas. This is the card I made for her gift. We are giving her money that she can either use to set up her apartment when she moves by the university she will be attending, or maybe she will want to take it with her when she goes to Hawaii next month. I know this is not the traditional type graduation card, but I only had one true graduation stamp and her sister used it to make her a card and I didn't want to copy her. Alison's favorite color is blue, and her graduation colors are blue and yellow(gold) so I think she will like this card. I know she will like the check that will be tucked down in the pocket on the inside of the card.
Tomorrow I will be busy baking a special graduation cake then preparing a special dinner for Alison with all her favorite foods. Hopefully we will all be attending the graduation ceremonies in the evening.
Have a great weekend.
