As you may have read, I have an 18 year old that will be graduating this year. She's my last child and it's a melancholy time for me. Remember those early morning soccer games in the cold? Or running three children around to their different activities each day? Family dinners on the run? I'm glad to be through with homework and school calendars, but I'm sad that my duties as a mom are starting to wain because my last child is almost grown. It's bittersweet, isn't it? Of course, this just opens up a whole new time for me. I'm going back to college right now (a goal that I've always wanted to complete!) and I'm learning to love books again. And of course, I have time to work on my crafts. So, when one door closes, another opens, right?

I colored this Tilda for my daughter. I'm going to put her on Allison's scrapbook pages for her Senior year. I think she turned out ADORABLE! I colored her in Allison's school colors, or as close as I could get. The stamp is from . I used Copics to color her. To give the diploma and tassle bling, I used my Gelly Roll Glitter pen. CS was purchased at Hobby Lobby and it's just a matching burgundy and slate gray. I love her!
