The second edition of the Cottage Classroom is available to download here. Here are a couple of the layouts featured in the newsletter. I am hoping that you can read the text of the When I grow up layout when you click on it to make it better...hmmm, that's kind of iffy so here is the journaling for it,
When I was in 2nd grade, we lived in Elkhart, KS and went to a library sale where mom bought me several books from the Cherry Ames Series.
Cherry Ames was a nurse during WWII. The series follows her through school until way after the war. She was a mystery-solver, romantic with bright red lips(why her name was Cherry, but more than once got her in trouble for wearing lipstick which was never allowed for a nurse.
She was a fantastic nurse that always wore her nursing cap with style and I wanted to be just like her. Nevermind the fact that I didn't want to do anything that actually had to do with nursing. Cherry was the original single girl in charge of her own destiny and she was my hero for a lot of years.
That is until I discovered my passion for art and creation...which definitely changed the focus of what I wanted to be when I grew up!
