Inkspirations Challenge #97 - School's Out.......FOREVER!

Welcome to another Inkspirations Challenge.  This week Keesh has another fab sketch for you to try & the possibilities with this one are endless:-

As for my blog title, last night our DD had her Year 12 Graduation, so it's the end of an era for our family - no more secondary school!

Here's the card I made her, using a cute digi image by Dustin Pike, which I thought summed things up pretty well:-

Congratulations on your daughters graduation, I hope it was an amazing night for you all. Wow, no more secondary school, that is definitely the end of an era.

What a milestone! I imagine in some senses you are a little sad! We are just finishing our 21st year of kids in school. And ... I have another 5 to go before Sandy graduates. (My only one still at school!) You can imagine the celebrations when we get there at the end of 2016!!! Adorable card, Helen! Super cute! Hugs xx
PS Me thinks SU! needs more "cute"!
