8th Grade Graduation Card

My son just graduated from 8th grade.  It's so hard to believe that he's already old enough to be off to high school this fall.  This is the card that I made for him. . . . . .


The image I used is from Bugaboo Stamps.  I use green and white because those are his school colors.

Is your son tall or is everyone around him short? LOL I know from my nieces and nephews that it's the age where you wonder if they're secretly eating Miracle-Gro. LOL Great CAS card for a boy and that pop of green from the cap and gown is terrific! =) Thanks for joining us for the Colour It Up challenge at PCJ! ~Christy

He is so much taller than the rest of us. Just under 6 feet and only 14 years old. I'm always being asked what I feed him and of course I have to answer with miracle grow. LOL
