For Our Girl

Hello, happy weekend!  Hope you get some time to do what you enjoy.  I made this little card for our Granddaughter.  She had a little graduation program at school yesterday.  She is leaving elementary school for middle school.   She received several awards and certificates.  The most prestigious was the Principals Award, chosen by the three 6th grade teachers and the principals, awarded to the student that they believe is the best of the best.  She also received the President's physical fitness trophy for having passed the physical fitness standards set forth, every year since the third grade when they first get tested.  She was the only student to receive the trophy and only a few students before her have achieved this award.  She received awards for  All City Band, Music (she plays the clarinet), among others.  Megan, Nana and Papa could not be prouder of the young lady you have become.  You are going to shine at Middle School!  Enjoy every minute, it all goes by very quickly.

This picture was taken a week ago.  Megan entered an Art contest through school.  The art is hanging in the offices of a local pediatrician's office (just happens to be the doctor the children go to!)  Her art was chosen along with  about 25 other young artist and they framed and hung them all and had a little reception to honor the students.  Here she is standing next to her art.

The image on the card is from Sassy Cheryl's.  The sentiment is by Paperbag Studio. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great Saturday.  Until later...............
