I’ve taught the teenagers at church for a while off and on, and one of my dearest teen friends is about to graduate from high school, and it breaks my heart that I won’t see her gorgeous smile, smiling back at me in the halls at church. She’s going to do great things in life though, so sharing her with the world, eases my heart just a bit. It reminds me that my oldest will flap his wings in 3 years, and THAT shatters this mother’s heart…but we won’t go there. Lets talks about graduation gift ideas. Shutterfly has so many wonderful options when it comes to gift giving, and I chose this glass frame to gift my friend Kaylee, with some pictures that I took of her.  I’m delighted to work with Shutterfly on this graduation campaign, search the hashtag #MyShutterfly on social media for more ideas! This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and Shutterfly program. All thoughts here are my own.

Graduation gift idea

I remember when I was a senior in high school, and that independent spirit kicked in FIERCE! Sadly, I didn’t make it into the #1 school of my choice, but I got there eventually, and ended up getting my degree from BYU! Sweet Kaylee is also headed to BYU, and I just can’t wait to hear the stories, and see the pictures on social media, of all the fun adventures I know she’ll have.

I asked her to model this shoot for her, and I’m delighted to gift her this glass 8×10 frame I spotted on Shutterfly. It’s free standing, with 2 wedges to rest the glass on. Perfect for a tabletop.

Graduation picture gift idea

Such unique way to display pictures. As many know, I’m a big fan of decorating with pictures.

I then printed some graduation announcement cards, Kaylee picked out the pictures she wanted to use, and together with her mom, chose a design on Shutterfly that she loved. There are so many great options from flat cards to folding cards, and it was simple to assemble! Double sided, 5×7 cardstock with envelopes. It’s even got a fun scallop on the edge!
