New Beginnings Challenge

This week @ Club Anya we are supposed to make a project that signifies "New Beginnings". I got an idea immediately because I just started a new beginning in my life!

I've been a stay at home mom for 4 years and I knew I wanted to go back to work someday but I didn't know what I wanted to do. I finally decided on school counseling (I really wanted to work with kids) and applied for grad school this summer. I got accepted and started in September and boy has life changed! I pretty much spend every spare moment reading textbooks and working on papers. My husband sacrifices a lot of time so that I can work on school work, he's really the best and is my #1 cheerleader. It's kind of tough sometimes but I feel like I've opened a new chapter in my life and I'm working hard to try and graduate in 2011!


Used:
TGF Stamp – Cheerleader Anya
Copics
Cricut – TBBM cart (bag), Locker Talk (grad cap)
Martha Stewart Loop corner punch
Glossy Accents
