Graduations Galore!

Good morning to all of you! It has been a hot sticky few days here in Chicago! We have been getting our pool ready and have run into a few snags here and there. (Which is always a bit frustrating!) Monday I had a bit of an asthma attack and had to leave work. (No air conditioning.......and 24 hot sticky bodies in one room!) It is much better today, but it was a bit scary. I've never had one like that before, it has always been mild and well controlled. Doc gave me a script for a rescue inhaler just in case it happens again!

June is fast approaching and that means weddings and graduations! I created this little grad hat using the Cutting Cafe's template. I used Papertrey paper and October Afternoon's DP. I had to add glitter, a Prima flower, and the year cut with my Quickutz.
The card does open, but I had a hard time standing it up....it kept toppling over! : )

My 5th graders are taking a field trip to the junior high today. They are so nervous about making the transition. It seems like only yesterday, they were just walking into my classroom for the first time. It is amazing how they have become "my" children. I am extremely protective of them.......even when they drive me crazy! I will miss this class dearly. Such a great group of kids!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!!!
