Today Stuck?! Sketches launches our second challenge of April. Grab the sketch and play along for some great prizes from Lindy’s Stamp Gang and ScrapMatts.
I was fortunate to spend four years earning my undergraduate degree at Ohio University in the 1980s. I don’t think there’s a way to work as hard as you have to when you’re taking a full load and holding down a job without having some difficult days. And I did. But mostly I loved my time there. I learned valuable stuff 😉 from some wonderful professors, made great friends, and matured from my experiences of being away from home.
And there was always one constant, on the good days and the bad: The beautiful campus made things better. On a day when I felt on top of the world and everything was going right, my gorgeous surroundings made me feel higher. And on a day when I hadn’t had enough sleep, was heading to an exam I knew I could never feel ready for, and was down in the dumps, being on that beautiful campus soothed my soul and lifted my spirits.
On this spring day in 1987, I’m posing with the cherry trees on the College Green, where the oldest administrative and classroom buildings are. It’s where the university started, and it’s where I felt at home away from home.
I used patterned paper from the Pebbles Garden Party collection. The title is made with Thickers alphas and a die cut from Shimmele. The bicycle sticker is from the Simple Stories Hugs & Kisses collection. The resin flower is from Fancy Pants.
