It's Graduation time here in the States and we got several friends whose children are graduating from kindergarten, high school and college. Wow, such a fun and exciting time for the graduates and their families. Today, we are attending the graduation parties of 2 ladies (one of them is also celebrating her debut).
I wanted to make them something but it's been a hectic weekend so I bought them these pretty necklaces from Charming Charlie. I love going to their store because it so full of eye candy, beautifully arranged by color scheme. Their designs are nice but definitely not one-of-a-kind.

I packaged the necklaces in a black box and added an embossed card that I colored using Tombow ABT markers and Tim Holtz's distress inks. I added dimensional magic over the birds and tied a light blue ribbon around the box. Simple but pretty. The blank cards are from Daysrping Blank Notecards - I prefer blank notecards because I like writing personalized messages.
I remember by HS graduation which we are celebrating 25 years of in December. Yay! It's Silver Jubilee and it's a big celebration. I wish I can go home to Manila and be there.
Oh my gosh! I couldn't imagine bow fast time flies. When I was younger, I would watch my mom and her classmates laugh their hearts out while reminiscing their days in HS and Nursing school and now... it's my turn. Good thing, I don't have kids who'd laugh at how funny we are.
There are times when I wish I was still young - with money regularly being given to me and who's responsibility was just to study. I have to give all credit to my Dad and Mom for working hard to send me and my 2 siblings to school. I was in Med school so they had to spend more money on me - time, love, effort and money that I can never repay them back. Thanks, Daddy and Mommy!
Do you have children who are graduating soon or are you an empty-nester already?
Have a great and blessed week, my friend!
