STMC #111


highest_mountain, originally uploaded by suzbucket.

This past week was veteran's day and got me to thinking..where are those boot camp pictures I had? I found one and it happens to be one of my favorites. My parents did all they could to come to my graduation in Parris Island, South Carolina. A lot of the other girls didn't have family there but I had my parents. For me this was a dream..to be called a U.S.Marine. A lot of people didn't think I'd make it but I did.. and for that reason I used the lyrics "I have climbed the highest mountain" from this week's Scrapping the Music challenge.

Thanks for looking . . .and by the way this picture was taken 21 years ago..oh my.

Love all the circles! What a great moment! I can't imagine how difficult it was in boot camp. The line you chose from the song is perfect for this picture. Thanks for playing along! We love seeing your creations!!!
