Sketchabilities #48!

Happy 1st of June everyone! And its time for another inspiring sketch over at Sketchabilities. Our guest designer is Ms. Bente Fagerberg and the rest of the design teams' layout can be seen here. And here's what I made for sketch #48...

Proud of You!... We are truly proud of this kid, his graduation ceremony was doubled with his recognition rites and we were surprised to learn that he was the Logical Math-Time Smart Awardee. We love you Chuwee! I used here DCWV cardstock and pps, Creative Imaginations pps, native twine, MM mini brads, Prima journaling stickers, AAS chipboard and puffy alphabet stickers.

God is always GOOD... when a door slammed right on your face, He opens a window. In my case, He opened lots of windows! I had a big blow last month and I had a big fall and it took awhile to get up on my feet again. I initially thought about my kids, maybe I had a wake up call to get back to them and take care of them again since they're both moving up in school. Then I thought of doing something while I stay at home again, I opened an online store catering my crafts. I went back to scrapbook services and photography. And now, I am both excited and nervous for a teaching demo tomorrow. Yes! I'm back to teaching but this time with bigger kids and hopefully a BETTER school.

At this point, I am so THANKFUL to the Lord! I owe it also to my family who is very supportive specially my Mom who always gives me this extra PUSH, my Auntie Linda and Uncle Bill in Delaware who are so generous in giving me everything that I wish to play. My bestfriends (you know who you ARE!) who are always there thru thick and thin and my LB Scrapaholics sisters who never left me even though I was away when I was teaching in Calauan. Most of all, THANK YOU sunlight for always coming after each challenging dark night!

I'm UP and back to the grind! Thanks for always looking!
