Time to Ring the Thesis Gong!

Hi Friends, it feels good to be writing a blog post after a super long hiatus from posting crafty projects!  This particular post is especially meaningful because the layout I did is celebrating a huge milestone for our son.  He completed his thesis for his Master’s of Applied Science this month!!  Such a huge accomplishment!

He moved to another province 3000 km from home two years ago; this move was a huge sacrifice and over the two years he has had to overcome some huge obstacles.  The fact that he was able to do this extremely challenging program and complete it along with the personal challenges he faced is a testament to what an amazing guy he is.  We are so proud of him!  He is an exceptionally good human and he has shown so much resilience.  We are so gratelful to have him move closer very soon and be able to help support him as he moves forward with this next season of life.  So much gratitude for this young man!

The layout shows him ringing the thesis gong, as he had the document printed!  Love these photos which are screenshots of a very short video he sent me to humor my desire to capture this moment in time and document this story!


I used the Pink Fresh Studio “Office Hours” collection for this layout as well as the Visible Image “Elementals” stamp set.  I have a process video explaining the steps for creating this layout over on my YouTube channel:

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have an amazing day!
