My daughter's best friend is graduating from high school this year.  Her mother is throwing her a surprise party and I forgot to make her a card.  Bad me!  Her birthday is coming up and I was thinking about that card and not remembering that this would be first.  I quickly scrambled up some ideas and I hated them all.  I don't really have much for graduation and what I do have I don't really like.  

So as I'm reluctantly looking to print one of the images I'm not fond of, I think lets just look in clip art to see what they have and low and behold I found a cute little graduation girl.  I also found this background in it too.  So I printed these out and colored her up.  Jacintay's school colors are black and red so I used Stickles and gems to add red since it prints out blue.

This is Jacintay.  Isn't she just beautiful!  She will be joining my daughter at BYU in Idaho this fall.  They are so happy to be getting back together.

I wrote the first part of this before the party and this part afterwards.  It was a wonderful event.  Lots of good people and good food.  So many people had so many wonderful things to say about her.  She is such a beautiful person inside and out. 

I hope you enjoyed this.  Thanks for visiting and have a magnificent day.
