working hard today

My daughter is graduating next month, so I thought it would be cool to use the girl graduate from creative kuts and enlarge the pattern. I will be using these on her tables as sort of a center piece. After she graduates I will have one more but she is only 10 so I have a while with her yet. I hate the empty next feeling.
