I have 7 nieces and nephews - lucky me! When they've finished middle school we've brought the first 6 to NJ to spend about a week with us (from their IL homes). We take them to see the Atlantic Ocean, Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. The highlight of the trip is the stretch limo ride into NYC where we spend the day walking around seeing as many tourist sites we can before taking in a matinee. The matinee we've chosen is Wicked. Now that we've moved to IL the trip is a bit different...more hotels. However, we're able to lodge with friends for a few nights so that will be a nice visit and change.
Thought I'd share the cards I made the kids and the insert for the youngest one...the others got $...guess you know what that looks like. All the cards were stamped with symbols of graduation on an embossing folder (thank you, Tim Holtz, for a wonderful idea!) then embossed. Everything is in school colors and the embellishments are also from the Tim Holtz line (numbers, tickets, rosette). The insert is Tim's witch and ticket. All inks are by Ranger.
