A+ Graduate

Hi everyone.

I hope that everyone is enjoying their Sunday.
I just finished doing homework and wanted to share this layout with you. 

This is my son Marquice graduating from preschool.  You may think oh well not a big deal, but to us it was.  The year that he started, was the same time that we found out that he had ADHD.  I didn't know anything about ADHD...and mean NOTHING!!!  Went through a trail of medications...including Ritalin, until we found something that worked.  It was a trying time for both of us and his teachers.  With help from his teachers and aides, we got him through it and he graduated top ten in the Preschool class.  Although times were challenging for him, i think he really challenged me to see things differently, because he did.

I am entering this layout in the following challenges:
-Alphabet Challenge Blog: U for Unused Stash (The apple shaker, had it since 2000 something, made for a swap, lifting Rebecca Sowers Movers and Shakers Tags)
-Fairy Fun Friday Week #35: Embossing (the board in the left hand corner and A+)
-4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #3: Wet/Dry Embossing (the board in the left hand corner and A+)
-Sew Many Challenges #27: Embossing Wet/Dry (the board in the left hand corner and A+)

Thank you for stopping by today.
