Some Graduation Pictures and FUN news!

As many of you know, my baby graduated from high school last Sunday.  It was a crazy week leading up to the ceremony, as I was trying to catch up on 5 years of scrapbooking in a week, planning a reception (they are practically like wedding receptions here), and having family from Arizona and North Carolina.  Plus end of the year talent shows at school (which turned out great).

In any case, I wanted to share some pictures.  I am so proud of my daughter and all she has done. The week before, at her Thespian banquet she won Best Thespian for 2011 and Outstanding Performance Awards for all three plays she was in this year.  Since she is majoring in Theatre, that really meant a lot to her.  Here is a picture at the banquet.
And here are a couple of pictures from her high school graduation ceremony and before:

Definitely Joy #18 (and she is 18!).  She will be moving about 15 hours away for college, but hey, my son was 22 hours away.  I can drive this in a long day!! :)  The reception was perfect - we had over 200 people there and she was so touched by that (as we were).

And now for more Joys and good news.  Remember this card and the Mother of All Blog Hops for There She Goes? I won one of the most awesome prizes ever for it! I won a $100 shopping spree at There She Goes (easy and done and they are on their way to me!) AND the chance to work with Jessica (owner) on designing a stamp set! We are talking about ideas and what vision I might like to do.  Isn't that cool???  

Joy #19. :)
