TTIC31 ~ Graduation!

Ready or not! This week, Rebecca throws us headlong into graduation season! In her words:

One of my most favorite scenes in the movie occurs when Edward is showing his home to Bella for the first time. As they go up the stairs, they pass a huge frame full of graduation caps.

Bella asks "Graduation caps?" and Edward replies "Private joke. We matriculate a lot".

Craft portion: Create a project suitable to give as a graduation gift!

Comment portion: Reminisce about your graduation ... or an upcoming graduation for someone in your life.

I love this time of year! Graduation was so exciting – felt so monumental! Which, of course, it was… I remember vividly being outside the auditorium saying good byes – and knowing that I wouldn’t see many of these people ever again. Promising to stay in touch, but knowing it probably wouldn’t last beyond the summer or first weeks of the college semesters. It was all a very surreal experience for me. And crystal clear in my mind!

TTIC31 graduation2For my craft, I initially made a grad cap card, a la the scene Rebecca described… I also loved that scene. In fact, I had a cap-tion (ouch) on it that said, “We mTTIC31 graduation1atriculate a lot.” That was just so funny to me! So, instead, this is a card I like to use for graduations – in the grad’s school colors, of course! I like it because it is encouraging, hopeful and positive. All the things a grad needs to face the new chapters in their lives.
