God Bless the Graduates of 2012
Good morning and happy weekend!!!! Today is the graduation party and needless to say, I don’t have all the pages I had intended to make for Kristin’s scrapbook, but will make the additional pages later this month as for now, I need to make mac’n chz for over 100 people!!!!! Are there any volunteers to help??? LOL!!!
Guess, what??? I supposed you’ll never guess it but I have another lay-out for you today and its for Kristin!!!!
South Park High School does something wonderful few schools that I am aware of do – a Baccalaureate ceremony. What this is, there are several students that have a strong Christian belief hold their own ceremony. This ceremony was held in the auditorium of the high school the day before the actual graduation ceremony. There was an invocation which was given by Kristin. Scripture reading, Christian folk music was performed, various students came up and introduced themselves and said how important of an impact Christ had upon their lives to succeed in school! This program was totally organized by the students!!! I was very impressed that these students had this ceremony and professed their love of Christ in today’s society where you hear that even the Lord’s Prayer can’t be said during graduation ceremonies, students speaking aren’t allowed to offer a prayer or even say the word “Christ”. Hats off to the Class of 2012 for putting Christ in their Graduation!!!!
For this lay-out I made a cross using My Scrap Chick’s Easter cross, http://www.myscrapchick.com/product.cfm?product=77, which I layered with puff dots, I also used the program (yes, there was even a program with the words to the songs being sung!), and a place for Kristin to put one of the pictures from the ceremony. Now, this mat is only a piece of paper, but the beautiful piece of paper lace was made by a dear friend of mine, Edwina Brown, in one of my happy mails and I truly believe with the love she made this that it belonged on my page which I just trimmed in ribbon. I also found these wonderful brads that are beaded wire words by Darice Finishing Accents - "dream", "believe", and "faith". Truly words of inspiration!
God Bless the Class of 2012 with special blessings of grace and love to my beautiful niece, Kristin!!! Wishing the graduates the best, love, and thanking South Park High School graduates for putting Christ in their Graduation!
God Bless and thank you for stopping by
Hugs, Love, and Pixie Dust
