She Laughs

Years ago, my brother met this girl (she's quite a bit younger than us), she had this adorable little girl, then not terribly long later, they decided to get married & had a baby together, but she & I never really bonded... you see we just didn't have much in common and didn't click.
Stuff & junk happened over the next few years and they divorced. Flash forward, different stuff & junk happened and we are friend, it's amazing how that happens... and I really think she's a great lady.
Recently I received a graduation invitation from her for college!

And I am So Unbelievably PROUD of her!
This is for Melody :-)


And her graduation invitation is hung on our refrigerator

Here's my inspiration.. Fusion Card Challenges
Ink - Tim Holtz Distress Ink & butterfly colored with Copic Markers
Chipboard Chevrons - UmWow Studio
Colored with StazOn
