Molly's Graduation

  Welcome to my blog glad you stopped by. Today I have just a quick post to honor our granddaughter (our 1st grandchild) as she closes one chapter and enters the next chapter of her life.  Such an emotional time as I can not believe the little girl that won our hearts from day one has graduated high school and will be going off to college in the fall.  Meme' and Pepe' are so proud of her and glad that we could be part of it and to get her to pose for a few pictures with us. Her card was made using Karen Burniston's Tag Book Pop-up die along with a few Cricut cutouts.   Until Next Time - Happy Crafting and remember - "you only live once... If you live right, once is enough" Unknown Christine ( aka Meme')
