STUCK?! April 15 Sketch & CHALLENGE YOUrself..

Hello there!
I hope you are not in a chocolate induced coma but enjoying today! I have been very good this Easter and have only had 2 eggs so far!!! But the week is still young!!! hehe!!

I had a lovely photo of my DD on her Graduation day and was looking for any excuse to scrap it, and thought about this months challenge for SCRAP YOUrself #40 which is...
to use the word inspire or inspired.. I could not be more proud of my DD who worked part time and put herself through Uni living away from home..  So she is my source of inspiration for my layout.. I found a quote that worked perfectly with my thoughts on this layout.. 
And I have teamed it up with a lovely sketch from STUCK?! SKETCHES April 15th which looks like..

And my layout...

A couple of  closer views..


I have used several collections of Kaisercraft papers..

I love this quote...  Family are so important to support and help each other, and education is an amazing tool to have in life..

This happened...


A truly amazing day...  So happy to have scrapped that photo!!!

Thanks so much to CHALLENGE YOUself and STUCK?! SKETCHES for two wonderful challenges...

Thank you for dropping by today and thank you for the lovely comments you leave me too....

  8. I think sometimes in Australia, our kids do not realise the value of education. It's not quite seen in such the positive light as in other countries, and that's a shame. Lecture over! LOOOOVE that photo & I'm so glad you got it scrapped so quickly, too:) That dark bg paper makes the embellies really pop so nicely:):) Hope your week is going well, Lizzy. Busy here. So what's new eh???!!!!!
