Seeing Kara was amazing!!! She looks fantastic and I can tell that she has grown so much in just a few months. It was hard for me to leave her there in Great Lakes, but she's a grown up now and on her own and I have to accept that, even though it's not easy. lol She will stay there for her A school until October/November-ish and then hopefully she will get to come home for 2 weeks before she gets stationed on a ship. She is classified as a Fireman/Engineer. She told me she really enjoys the firefighting work and is eager to dig into more training. Have I mentioned how proud I am?!
Onto scrappy stuff. Our SRM DT challenge for the month was to use circles. I actually made 2 layouts for this one; one I was not thrilled with and then I replaced it with another that I like so much better. I am struggling with my style right now and trying to find a groove... it will emerge in time. lol
Here is the layout I posted for the challenge. I just love this photo of my dad and Kara at her high school graduation last June. My wonderful SIL Jessica took this photo and it speaks to me. I used 3 sets of sticker sheets to create the background. I really like how it turned out.
