Juliana's Award Day

Congratulations go to Juliana, who recieved some very special awards at her school Awards Day!!  She was recognized twice for her skills as an artist, and received a Fine Arts Scholarship to a summer daycamp of her choice.  She received a "B-B+" average for her year's work, and received a medal for that.  Juliana also received a very special award - a Literacy award for all her hard work in the areas of reading and writing this year.  At the beginning of the year, she struggled with reading - now she reads in bed after I've shut off the light, as well as on the bus, and after school!  Juliana, you have come a long way in one year!  Congratulations!!!


A neighbor had us take some photos of her apple tree in bloom - Juliana had fun helping me out with this.  Photos are much more fun when you are in the tree, than simply under it.


I had fun making some cards for friends.  This card uses retired Stampin' Up! designer papers.  I used the technique Fossil Stone - it gave such an interesting background.

Spring is so vibrant and lovely this year! 
May you enjoy all this day has to offer!
