Bloom With Hope - IAS #42

Good morning my friends. Sorry I am so late getting this posted. I got distracted this past weekend with the start of the Fall Semester of school! Yes, I'm a college student attend BYU-Idaho Online. I'm at the start of my dream of becoming a certified genealogist. Family History Research has been my passion for a long time.

I've also been away from IAS for some time now too. I was finishing up my studies through the Pathway Connect program and graduating from that program July 26. I'm glad to be back and hope to do better getting my projects done and posted.

Our challenge this fortnight is Nature.

 Materials Used:
  • Image - Stampin Up Bloom With Hope
  • Sentiment - SU Bloom With Hope
