Graduation Season

Graduation season is here again...time for celebrations and moving forward in life.  I'll admit, I miss my boys being in pre-school and having their own little graduation at the end of the year.  It's not such a big deal at the elementary schools, but I always make sure to do something special on the last day of school and we have our own graduation celebration at home.  Looking forward to making some fun, crafty creations for the end of their 1st grade year.  Until then, I have a few graduation cards I was asked to make.  Two are for high school graduates and one is for an 8th grade!!!  With some extra help from Pinterest, I came up with these 3 cards:
