I took a call on Friday from one excited young lady who wanted to share her news "I am going to be following in your footsteps".  What she was really saying was that she had been accepted onto a teaching course for next year once she gets her degree.  Like I did she will be training to teach 5 to 11 year old children and hopefully unlike me it will be what she does - I taught secondary school Maths!  Lauren is really good with youngsters and I think she will make an excellent teacher.

I already had this High Hopes bookworm out as I was going to send her some encouragement for her studies but the bright colours and the sentiment are there because of her wonderful news.

I am entering the card for the following challenges
JUGS 123 - use buttons at the centre of your design - 2 on there!
F4A103 - Rainbows
Sentimental Sundays 89 - Shaped Card with a sentiment
Stampin Sisters in Christ 126 - Happy News
