Dream Until . . .

I took a class with Renee of "I came, I saw, I created" where we made the neatest Take Out Folder.  I thought it was a great idea and was fun putting it together.

My son's girlfriend is going north to attend graduate school to pursue her dream/goal of playing violin professionally.

I thought this format would be a perfect way to send her off to her new home, albeit temporary.

I used a pocket folder and the measurements from Renee's post to cut my panels.

I added menus/information sheets from places near the university.  There was also a space for me to add a personal note of encouragement.

Attached embossed pockets to the back section

to insert some encouraging scriptures to help when she feels lonely.

A few gift cards to the local merchants attached with washi tape ~love the {hugs and quiches}
