On May 6th we loaded up the Xterra, bicycle, kayaks, guitar AND sombreros.  We headed up to Michigan for my baby sister's graduation from Indiana University at South Bend.  What a great occasion for my family to get together and celebrate.  It seems that every summer since 2002, our oldest son Andrew's high school graduation, we have had a reason to celebrate.  

This year we celebrate RaSonda!  She's my youngest sister and one of my best friends in the entire world.

I wanted something besides a traditional "congrats grad" card for her.  So I came up with this one.  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~>

I used a Papertrey stamp set, borrowed from my friend Dawn.  The paper is Sophie Rose.  I love that collection of goodies, wish I had one of EACH piece.

The ink is Stampin' Up, chocolate chip.  Added a button and some goldenrod twine and there it is.  The sentiment is for sure true in the case of my baby sister.  She has accomplished a lot, with a lot of hard work.

Congratulations RaSonda and all those graduates of 2011 who have  MADE IT!
