Recapping Arizona!

I wanted to share with everyone not only the graduation cards I made for my neice, but also the reason for a 4 hour flight west, four hour drive straight up a mountain and a four day trip without my crafting/computer and family unit. 
Daughter and I first day in Phoenix mall!
Had to show you the mountainous trip!


The Nana's (my mom's) present grandchildren
including the HS Grad on the right!
My brother and his first grandson!
Four Generations

There were four generations gathered in Arizona and my brother and his first grandson met for the first time!  This baby is the best smiler ( you just say: "Smile" ) he loves it!
Also, when I got back it was Memorial Day and my Hubby and Son were in the Memorial Day Parade! 
Both of the cards were created with portions of the announcement sent from Arizona, the school name was used, the year, the schedule on the MO Manning image card, and the purple ribbon on the bottom of the clear page card with the Whimsy image.
The photo's are not good because no photo tent, no regular camera, you know how it is.  The iphone did ok!   So no challenges entered but thought I would share anyway.  Who knows!  Could inspire someone!
