Graduation, the day I thought would never come

Really I should be embarrassed that I am blogging about this because it is almost 2 months later HOWEVER due to the fact that I am graduated and have not yet found a job I have some free time on my hands and I decided to kill some time with looking at previous posts of mine and realized it's fun to look back at them. So this is probably more for me than anyone else. Anywho, I graduated May 7th from what felt like the longest, most hellish (pretty sure that's not a word) program in my life. I was in the Dental Hygiene program at Salt Lake Community College and though I am glad that I did it, I am even more glad that's it's over. After many, many hours of studying, lots of money, days of stressing and nights of frustration and tears I can now officially call myself a Registered Dental Hygienist. R.D.H. for short! WAHOOO!!!! Now if only I could find that thing called a job.....

Making something out of nothing

We recently rearranged our room and we needed something to hang above our bed. Well I knew that Nick's brother had these square metal sheets that they were getting rid of and I thought they would be perfect for our room. I originally thought it would be cool to take a picture of a cool branch and divide it into 3 pictures and hang them but that "cool branch" was non existent so I settled for these weeds. I took the picture and I wish I could say that I helped edit them but Alyssia did all the work. I did give my input though. :) I developed the pictures at Costco into a 16X20 then cut 4 inches off the 20 inch side making them square. I then glued them to a foam board and cut them out, cutting my skin along the way. So this is the end result! Tell me what you think. I didn't take these pictures in raw accidentally and I didn't realize how much better raw photos edit. Oh well! lesson learned.

I took Mels family pictures the other night and we had a great time. Ian was ready to go when we got there. :) Karsen was not about to have his picture taken and Korben was all about the camera and Mel was just along for the ride. What a cute bunch! One day I will get this flickr thing figured out... until then, click on the pic to see the whole thing.
This wasn't what I was going for but I liked it anyway
