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.
