May flowers

 Happy Monday!  One graduation down, one to go!  It's been an emotional rollercoaster for sure.  My college senior graduated summa cum laude from my alma mater and I had tears of pride and joy watching him walk across the stage to get his diploma last weekend.  Our whole family, his fiancee, and grandparents were able to be there on his special day, thanks to the reductions in covid cases with vaccinations and capacity restrictions removed.  It was an amazingly wonderful surprise!  We have one graduation to go, with my youngest graduating from high school this week.

It's a flower challenge over at BBTB2.  Everything is in bloom outside and I am loving it!  Creating with flowers always makes me happy!  I used these lovely blooms from the Artistry collection for the card I made for Mother's Day.  I got my mom some real flowers too, but moms can never have enough flowers, right?  I had to play with the layers a bit to get two shades of pink plus my green leaves showing, but love how it turned out!  You can see the design team projects and link your project over at BBTB2 for the next two weeks.
