Thanks for stopping by for the 24th Release Blog Hop! I'm sure you came here from Tracy's blog, but if not: mosey on over to Emma's blog to start from the very beginning (a very good place to start... or so I've been told).
This year my oldest nephew, Mitch, is graduating from high school. I can't believe how quickly time has passed. I still remember the day he was born. I was in third grade and my classmates and I were enjoying "Fun Friday" where we got to watch a movie and eat Jolly Ranchers towards the end of the school day. My teacher, Mr. Avoledo, called me up to his desk to tell me that he just received a call that my sister-in-law had her baby. I was FILLED with joy and went back to my seat bragging to all of my little friends about becoming an Aunt.
I cried tears of joy when he first called me "Ron Ron" (his young way of saying "Aunt Ronnie" at the time). And I was so proud when he became a percussionist in his school band (following in my footsteps). I don't think he'll ever really understand how special he is to me.
For his graduation, I created this fun, colorful card. The faux-stitching on the outside border was done using a white gel pen and I used my Copics to color in the plane. I embossed the orange layer with Stampin' Up!'s Cloud Impressions Folder.
