SPA When I Grow Up


I am hosting the challenge on SPA this week. The theme is "When I Grow Up". I chose this week when Mandy sent me the list of themes available as I always wonder when I look at little children what they will be when they have grown up, and how important it is to make children realise they can be anything they want to, if they are only given the incentive to try.

I am extremely proud of my own daughter, who through sheer hard work has gone on to achieve a 1st class degree, has also now completed a year of post grad teacher training and just this week found out she had got the teaching job that she really wanted.

So I dedicate this weeks theme to all the children in the world, spread your wings and learn to fly and you can achieve anything.

My collage image is from a free sheet that is available from Salems Dreams

My stamped quote background is from an Artistic Outpost Stamp sheet.

Hope you enjoy your day and thank you for visiting my blog, Carol x

Huge congrats to your daughter on landing the job she wanted - she must be so happy.

Love this piece - the faded text in the background and cute butterfly wings on cheeky Betty Grable - brilliant!
