I can't believe today is August 31! The summer has flown by and it is almost time for school. It was a busy summer as I am sure it was for all of you. I did finally find time to scrap. Yay! I was able to make two layouts to go with the Creative Scrappers Sketch challenges. I love their sketches! The first sketch is #116, I did was a picture of Sara and her teacher, Mrs. Blender.
Journaling: If only there were more teachers like Mrs. Blender. She saw the intelligence and confidence inside Sara and brought them to the surface. She pinpointed Sara's learning difficulty in comprehension and took her under her wings. After several tests and meetings with the both of us, she set up a team to help Sara deal with being an IEP student. She taught Sara how to read in between the lines, special ways to take notes and how to test herself. Thanks to Mrs. Blender's dedication$ the help of other teaches. Sara is going to school to be a sonographer and is getting straight A's.
Supplies: BoBunny Block Party papers, journaling card and buttons, Thicker letters
The second Sketch #117 is about our new puppy, Sparkles.
Journaling: You wanted a puppy, we wanted a companion for Max... so we took a ride to Pet Smart on July 22, 2010 and you adopted Sparkles from Save a Life foundation. Even though she is your puppy, we all take part in the taking care of our Sparkles.
Supplies: Leaving Prints pp, MM Ribbon, Flowers gifted from my cousin Kelly, Thicker letters, Around the Block Dog House Pin, SU Brads.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks to the Creative Scrappers Sketch DT for making awesome sketches. I am looking forward to working on more this week. Creative Scrappers
