University

My eldest son started the next chapter of his life when he moved to University on Saturday, he is studying to be a Primary School Teacher, this is the card I made for him.


I kept it quite simple, the papers and image are from the La Pashe The Best of 2012 CD and the sentiment is computer generated.


It certainly feels very strange without him, very quiet as well!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Through The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes
Creative Moments Challenge 77 - Always Anything Goes with optional twist Kids Rule/ Back To School
Fan-Tastic Tuesday Challenge 102 - Anything Goes with a twist: Colour Me Autumn

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.

I love, love, love, LOVE this! Awesome image and papers. I'm sure your son loved it!
It's true though, you don't realise how much noise kids (especially the big ones) make until they're out of the house, lol. x

A beautiful card Pauline - that's a super image. Wishing your son all the best - I don't think you need to worry about him having fun at Uni - I think they all manage to tick that box nicely!!! Jx

A fabulous card - I'm sure your son loved it. Having worked at two Universities I don't think students have to be told to have fun!

Congrats to your Son! Those first few weeks are tough!!! I still remember how hard they were for me. Now the youngest lives behind me and I get to see her all the time, but when she goes home my heart hurts a little bit. Wonderful card and I know he appreciated it! How great he wants to shape young lives! Wonderful stuff. Hugz
