Nurse graduation

I graduated from nursing school 26 years ago, and today I had my boyfriend's daughter (also named Lisa) graduate from the same nursing school.  It was emotional for me.  I will have my own daughter graduate next weekend and Lisa today so it has been very special.  I'm very proud of these young women.  It is great to see the enthusiasm and energy.  For this card, I used pre-colored images from the Paper Shelter and a sentiment from TLC.  I made this as an easel card.
