Graduation post....

My niece recently graduated from year 7 - this year she starts high school, the time has flown by so quickly, I remember racing to the hospital as I was to be present at the birth - only my workplace wouldn't let me go until things had been finished - I missed her birth by 5 minutes, but haven't missed any other important things in her life since....  It seems like yesterday!  Anyway they had a dance and a meal to celebrate and she got to dress up and have her hair done  I couldn't let the event pass without a card from our family so here is my card for her:



I will be back soon with the other two cards - one from my mum and dad (her nan and pop)  and one from her sister!
