Since starting this little blog of mine in 2007, I have met some pretty amazing people. Fellow bloggers who are artsy, who have shared their stories, listened to mine, and in doing so we have forged friendships. I believe we all cross paths for a reason. Every person plays a role in your life......some how....some way. Nothing is an accident. I have been blessed. I met a fellow artsy mom, Paula, who just happened to have a special needs daughter around Cortney's age. We've e-mailed many times and bonded instantly. Maybe it was having something in common, or the fact that she is just a funny, kind hearted woman who has taken what life has given her and turned it into lemonade. She does amazing work with vinyl and came up with the cutest T-shirts that celebrate our kids. She made one just for Cortney. Cortney loves her T-shirt.....and I love her T-shirt.! So thank you dear Paula for this special gift to Cortney!
I used lots of Spellbinder's dies here.....from the Poloroid frame to the camera...to the flowers and leaves. (Spellbinder's Snapshot, and Foliage Two.) The sentiments are part of JustRite's Samantha Walker stamp set called, Ooh La La French Frills.....
I did a bit of masking with a Hambly screen and white paint. I added a spattering of sequins too. ; )
And since I am on a Cortney post today, I thought I'd share my girl doing her homework. She is learning about density and had to do an experiment on whether objects would sink or float. She is often a girl who is not very patient. But for this, she stuck with it for nearly an hour and a half. She was excited to make her predication and see if she was correct. I couldn't have been more proud of her. We are blessed that she goes to a school that expects her to learn. She learns things in all academic areas.....and they push her to keep striving for her potential.
So with that said, I have to share an exciting piece of news....Cort has her first photo shoot on Friday with a modeling agency. I am, she is....super excited! I am also extremely nervous. I hope it goes well.......and she smiles her face off that day! : D
