Awesome

Here is another scrapbook page for a challenge over at Soul Scrappers. This challenge is pick a word beginning with the letter A like awesome. This young lady my granddaughter fought hard to graduate High School. She fell behind because she was moved around so much and found herself down credits at the school in Illinois where she was living so she gave up. Lets just say that didn't sit well with her Papa and they had a heated discussion. She came to live here in WI with her dad because of it. She had lived with him on and off over summers ect.  He sat her down and had a long talk with her and let her know it was not acceptable to not finish school so they needed to figure something out. They put their heads together, found a program that she would get credit for if she could pass the required tests. She passed most of them and had to concentrate on a few subjects  while keeping up on the rest of her daily work. She manage to make up all her missing credits and pass the rest of her classes to graduate on time. She can be a real super hero when she sets her mind to it and has some back up. It's pretty hard to raise yourself as she was doing. She has been in Wi. ever since and relies heavily on her dads guidance. Enough of that now for the stuff
Paper the yellow w/stripes is we r memory the dark brown is from some file thing I purchased long ago it also has a design and my third dp is the blue one with the brown flourishes. I've never scrapped with 3 dp's that were all pattern before. I think they work?????
Embellishments flowers are from Michael's and some paper ones made with TH tattered flowers. The left top is a spellbinders die I picked up with my new die cutter colored with TH ink the title was cut with TH thinlit letters and numbers. I little diamond pattern TH stencil inked with walnut distress. Then some rub ons that I've had forever.
That is it
Hugs
