Month: June 2013

My son graduated from Grade 6 last week and will be going into Secondary 1 next Fall!  I can hardly believe my little boy will be entering high school!  My youngest son will be going into grade 4!  I am seeing them grow into two wonderful young men and I get a little teary when I think of how they were just babes in my arms not so very long ago!  I am so proud of who they are and how unique and interesting each of them is.  I am lucky to be their mother, and I learn from them every day! I’ve used my SCHOOLBOY Image for these thank you cards in french and English for their teachers.

First Birthday

We celebrated my Great Nephew’s 1st birthday last weekend!  He is so adorable!!  I thought I’d show you the card I made for him with a little help from My Memories Software. This is actually a ONE LAYER card, but I’ve used shadowing to help create the look of layers.  I also added 3 gems for some sparkle. And here is the little prince with his cake! Have a great day!  Deena
