Documented Life Project Weeks 19 and 20

DLP Week 19

Challenge: Document a Random Acts of Kindness from you.

I chose not to document a specific act but to work with the words Random-Act-Kindness

I cut those specific words with their definition out of an old dictionary.

DLP Week 20

Challenge: Use a rubber stamp in a new way.

This week my son, Joe, graduated from Marshall University with his Master of Science degree in Information Management.  I am so very proud of him.  So I wanted to incorporate a photo of him in his cap and gown.  I cut a heart from a piece of paper and used a rubber stamp of wood grain to stamp into the negative space.  Then I used Dylusions inks around the heart to color my background.  I added his photo into the heart.
I thought the stamped sentiment appropriate because he took all his classes for this degree while getting married, buying a new home and having a new baby.  

Sometimes he would ask me if it would be worth the pain of taking classes during all this and I told him to just keep going it definitely would be worth it in the end.

Here is the graduation card I made him:
Again, I am a proud mamma.
Thanks for stopping by.
