Graduation Thank You Cards

Walking towards the stage.
This is the Hummer that picked up all 19 grads and took them to commencement.
Before graduation, acting like a big dork. This is his serious look. It's totally fake.


This is the second set of cards for my oldest son's high school graduation. He got lots of loot. This community is so generous! All the businesses get together and throw a party on graduation night. It starts at midnight and goes until 6am. Each kid gets about $200 of loot at just that event. Mine got a Kodak Easy Share camera as his big gift. Some kids got small TVs or microwaves, whatever they asked for that was on the list they passed out, actually. That's not to mention all the gifts and money from friends and family. People really are generous. There were 19 in DS's class. They all came, and they all stayed the whole night, that's how fun the adults who run the party make it! Also, one of the fathers rented a stretch Hummer and a driver and came and picked up every single graduate at their house and took them to graduation!

I used H & M Stamps' Rock On set, Basic Gray's Aged & Confused, SU! Classy Copper ep, and making memories screw eyelets. I knew I'd have a use for them some day when I bought them over five years ago! I also used a sketch from 365 Cards Day 85. My blog pal Amy is a 365 designer, so I like to play along now and then. There's no way on earth I could do it 365 days, though! I think there's only three things I've ever done 365 days in a row: 

1. Love Jesus.
2. Love my family.
3. Brush my teeth.

How can i wipe windows xp from my laptop and reinstall windows Me -the laptops original software?
I have recently bought a acquainted with laptop that is old. The himself I had bought it from had installed windows xp on it, orderly yet it originally came with windows Me. I want to oust the windows xp because it runs slows on the laptop because it takes up more thought than the windows Me would. Also I wish to transfer windows xp because it is an illegal copy.
