BBTB2 - School Days/ Exciting news!

Hi! Remember me?!
How are you doing?
Hope you've had a good couple of weeks.

Life is so busy and I only seem to get time to check emails on my phone! Thank goodness for smart phones!! lol. That said, I plan to catch up with you all over the next day or so.

Today is a new challenge over at BBTB2 and our lovely Jaren is our host and has set a school days challenge....anything/achievement to do with school.

I made a shaped card cut at 8" from Create A Friend and the phrase was cut at 2".
A little embossing,inking and distressing later and a card suitable for my teenager!

This ties in well with our family exciting news.....

Ossian has been invited back to Indonesia to play in the Asian Junior World Golf Championship again in June. So this is for our wonderful 13 year old son who we are immensely proud of.

I chose the 'achievement' part of our challenge! Cough,cough!! ( okay not school...sshhh!)
The DT girls have lots of fabulous inspiration for you so do check them out and come play along.

Thanks for looking and a special thank you for continuing to visit me whilst I have been away from blogland.
