HELLO and Happy Friday!!!! Today is a special day at school. With it being Memorial Day our music teacher works all year with the kids to put on a special program honoring veterans. Each class during the year adopts a veteran and then the veteran comes in and shares his stories about what branch he or she was in and what it was like to serve. The kids love having them come and are full of questions. Then tomorrow there are at least 110 veterans coming to the special program and they will be honored with songs, letters and special presentations from the school kids. This is the 3rd year at our school and it gets better every year. It is a wonderful tribute to them and a way to thank them for all they sacrificed for us. It brings tears to the eyes of everyone there.
I am a guest DT at Raise The Bar Challenge Blog this week, I am very honored to have been chosen. Their challenge this week is "Congratulations" in honored of all the graduates. I decided to do a card for a little girl I know that is so excited about graduating from kindergarten. They are having a graduation ceremony next Friday so this card will be perfect for her.(They are wearing blue caps and gowns). On a side note my stars on this card look a bit odd in this picture. They are very shiny silver with holographic stars on them, the camera doesn't show it too well. I hope you stop by Raise The Bar and play along with this fantastic challenge. The DT are super talented and can't wait to inspire you with their creations.
