Hello! Happy Thursday night. It's been a great week. I finally GRADUATED with my Applied Associate's of Science degree in Family History Research yesterday from Brigham Young University-Idaho. All my classes have been online. The day started out kind of low key. I did have lunch plans with a few of my friends, but they turned that into a big surprise luncheon with more of my friends. They really made it so special. It was such a fun time. The Convocation was virtual yesterday afternoon. It had seemed so surreal until I was listening to them play Pomp and Circumstances and saw photos of all the graduates, and I got all emotional. Then I saw my own picture and it was real. I'm finally a graduate with a degree. That's not the end though. I'm planning to try for accreditation through ICAPGen - International Commission for the Accreditation of Professional Genealogists. Hopefully I can complete that in a year and then I plan to go back to BYU-I and work on my Bachelor's Degree. When I get that, I most likely will be able to walk the stage to receive my diploma. I'm counting on it anyway. Here is a photo of my friends, from left to right around the table: Judie, Peggy, Carole, Liza, Pok, Thora, Me, and Sharon.
So, on to the task at hand - posting a card for the Creative Card Chicks challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. This month our hostess was VikkiJo. She sent us all a kit with images, papers, and embellishments to use to make a card or two or how ever many we can get out of the kit.
