Award Day

Hello my blogger friends! I hope you are in the best of health. I've been missing in action...so many happenings took place the past two weeks until now. The school term is coming to its end on Thursday the 8th day this month...that will be a big relief for me as the kids chauffer for sure. My children and I are looking forward to our long holidays until the end of the year. Time sure flies but I do kow I have spent on both greath quality and quantity times throughout the year especially the times with my children where I can hardly breath sometimes.
This day I managed to get back to scrapping. I decided to scrap my eldest daughter's recognition award day for her memory based on a sketch from Let's Scrap. Here's how I interprate my layout:


...the sketch...
 
Materials used: Tim Holtz Idea-ology Paper Stack and distress ink pad, cardstocks, 'Alyaa's school badge and name tag and my trusty printer
 
...some close-ups...
 I patiently cut out the printed alphas to make the title...phew!
 
 Normally an event like this takes a split second to shoot but I was lucky because 'Alyaa went up stage twice to accept her awards so she gave me great opportunity to shoot! 'Alyaa will get her Principal (the one in batik shirt) to sign an autograph on the white space before she kiss the school goodbye on Thursday the 8th!
 
 There she is always looking serious eventhough I quickly told her again "smile for the camera" after she got down from the stage after receiving her first plaque...duh... I will get her sports teacher's autograph to feed the pocket {will do this secretly without her knowledge}!
 It took her lots of time and dedication to achieve these awards...and lots of my time too driving her to sports training, so on and so forth...well deserved :)
 
Having achieved these awards means the end of her sports glory at SKTSW where she has spent six years studying in primary level. She will continue her studies at secondary school next year for five years and she has already asked me if she can be active in sports...all I know she is dead tired after each training but if she can balance herself between academic and curricullum, it shouldn't be a problem. My only hope is she will strive for the best!
 
I will present another layout tomorrow...stay tune. Thank you for visiting me today!
Hugs and smiles,
