Congrats Grad!

Happy Victoria Day!  
It's time for another fun challenge at My Craft Spot and this week's theme is Congrats/Graduation.  At the end of June, my youngest will be graduating from his school (Grade 6) to move on to middle school. Life can be a challenge for him as he has autism so we are especially proud of this major accomplishment in his life. Four years ago, he was in a private school that was absolutely awful for him.  With a broken heart, we took him out of his school and put him in the public system.  WOW!  What a difference!  My biggest prayer was that he would be accepted and loved for who he is - and that prayer has been answered.  We are so incredibly thankful for the support that he has received and the full extent of inclusivity that has been extended to him.

I used a fun file from My Scrap Chick to create my card.  I designed the word art using a Brady Bunch font.

I finished everything off with a fabulous sentiment from My Craft Spot's Banner Sentiments set.  This card was so quick and easy to assemble - and I LOVE the way it turned out!

In this busy time of graduations, weddings, babies, new homes, etc., etc., be sure to enter your congratulations/graduation projects at My Craft Spot for a chance to win this week's prize - the Banner Sentiments stamp set!
