Stuck!? Mid-March sketch Challenge

Stuck Sketch blog has released the Mid-March Sketch.

I used a cut file from The Cut Shoppe called It Adds Up. I used the 8.5x11 option as is. I cut it twice, once in black and again in white without the plus signs. I was unsure if I would be using washi tape or patterned paper for the pops of color and wanted to have an solid backer for the washi tape just in case. I ended up using paper and popping up the whole cut file.


I used a picture and text from my Facebook post from the other day. 

Backstory: My youngest is hearing impaired (born without eardrums nor full ear canals, she has underwent many surgeries in her short 7 yr life to correct it but will always benefit from using the hearing aids) We are just so very thankful for the team of people that has been Syd's advocates. The list grows each and every year. We call them Team Super Syd.

I will be forever grateful for the team of people that took my surly mute 2.5 yr and made her this spunky, funny, sweet 7 yr old wonder of joy. When I catch her doing awesome normal things like reading a book nonstop just because she wants to, I like to stop and thank those teachers, paras, doctors, speech and hearing specialist for every effort they put towards our daughter. She was not the easiest to work with especially in  the early years.  Each and every one of them added their expertise to change her life for the better.

The cut file of connect circles with plus signs fits this perfectly.

Thanks for looking.
