What does AMAZING mean to you?

a·maz·ing

[uh-mey-zing] –adjective

causing great surprise or sudden wonder.

As most of you know…I am a mom to many kids.  Each one of my kids has their own, outward talents.  I have one who, if asked, would say, she has no talent.

This 2nd oldest child of mine, has at times felt overshadowed by her older sibling, for his accomplishments in the creative sense.

My oldest daughter, who had been home schooled for quite a few years, is back in public school as a SENIOR!!

Whenever she has an assignment, in a class she really likes..she has always gone, WAY BEYOND what one expect.

She had a project for one of her classes, I think she needed to do a drawing of a conflict or scene in the book.

She could have done..just a simple drawing and handed it in..but no!  She did her project a’ la SOFIA.

She fretted so much about this and I am sure that she was very uncomfortable with the way her FINAL project turned out.  She is not one to bring attention to herself, but when she puts her heart into something..

**”The whole world stops and stares for a while”

This post is to pay tribute to her,  because…

**”When I compliment her
She wont believe me
And its so, its so
Sad to think she don’t see what I see”

** ~ from  Just The Way You Are Lyrics by Bruno Mars~

I created this page for this weeks challenge on The Lollipop Spot.  The challenge this week = YELLOW.

You can’t really see the detail of her picture, so here are some larger images.

One more time, the whole Image..

 

Sadly,  here teacher wants to keep it(sad for mom)..she also did this on poster board..so I am a little worried how it will age(weird mom!)

What do you think??  Well, that is my definition of AMAZING!!

For some unrelated news…here is a card I did as part of a Design Team Submission I did for the company IMAGINISCE.  I am hoping they will view my whole portfolio on the blog, but they asked for us to create a project using at least 75% of their stuff.  So here is what I came up with.

Parting view…

Talk about competition….wish me luck.  This would be like a DREAM TEAM…but competition is steep and numerous.  I am sure.

That is it for today…I have some fun ideas for tomorrow and next week!
