Last Day at SMS

The last day of school normally is a time that all kids are looking forward to, but that was not the case this year for mine.  They knew is just brought them closer to the move.  I know that I was really struggling, knowing it was our last year at SMS.  It is such a wonderful community that I can't imagine finding something that compares.  I was really expecting to find Maddy upset saying goodbye to all her friends, but I found just the opposite.  She had a beautiful smile on her face as she hugged and said goodbye to all of her friends.  They on the other hand were all crying :)  She didn't know it, but it was a gift to me to see her so brave.  I knew then that she was going to be just fine in her new school. 
I started with the 6th grade paper from the school is cool line and then added little pops of color with some scraps I had from previous projects. I love it when I can use up those scraps! I think it really highlights the photos :)
