"Create"...Graduation Gift for Graduating Laurels

This is a gift we are giving our graduating Laurels, welcoming them into Relief Society. (Our church's class for women).  We are giving them a manual, a Symphony candy bar and a card that has the following poem inside.

The card is made using SEI paper and a 4" cut of the Cameo3 from the "Heritage" cartridge.
The cut on the medium-sized Symphony candy bar is 3" wide using the "A Child's Year" cartridge.

I like the way this poem ties in Young Women's and Relief Society. 


Through life’s changes hold onto the beauty and truth
Of each Young Women value you learned in your youth.

Heavenly Father will guide you as your course you chart;
Walk by faith with each footstep, a prayer in your heart.

For it’s your divine nature you’re here to refine;
You’re a daughter of God throughout all your lifetime.

Individual worth is a principle true,
For your sins and your sorrows the Lord bled for you.

In this season of life you’ll continue to seek
Gospel truths, self-improvement and knowledge concrete.

For each choice you’re accountable, though hard to make;
Let your sisters surround you and lend you their strength.

Your excitement through transition years will abound;
With good works you will see that your joy can compound.

With integrity deep in your soul you’ll feel calm,
And be worthy of promptings to guide you along.

With your eye on the temple your virtue is sure,
And the Holy Ghost’s whisperings will lead to its door.

Now in Relief Society charity dwells,
And this value you’ll add to the ones you know well.
It’s the pure love of Christ you’ll devote now to learn,
So that into his arms you may one day return
