Yay, Michael!

My son Michael just graduated from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities! Yay, Michael!  He got a bachelors degree in Food Science and the best news is that he has a job in his field.  We are so thrilled for him. 
I finally had a chance to play with some of the items I had preordered from the Occasions Catalog the beginning of December.  This stamp set is called Pomp & Circumstance and I knew as soon as I saw it, that I’d use it for his graduation card. 
Keep following my blog as I will be posting samples made from stamp sets and product from the Occasions catalog.  If you haven’t received your copy yet you should be getting it very soon.
