Words 2 Craft By #53

It has been a long time since I have had the time to play along at Words 2 Craft By. I know a few of the ladies who are involved in this group from my days creating cards for Operation Write Home. The words for this month If you can read this, thank a teacher.

I can recall quite a few teachers who had a profound influence in my life. Most of them are from my high school days. In my Senior Year I had a history teacher (Miss Miller) who taught us about voting. It was a very significant year (1971) because the voting age was lowered from 21 to 18. She gave us all the whys and hows of voting, what a privilege it was to vote, not a right but a privilege and also an obligation. She told us if you want to be part of history you must vote. The 26th Amendment became part of the Constitution on July 1, 1971 (a month after I graduated).

Needless to say, the following year (1972) Richard M. Nixon was voted in as our new President and the rest is history. I have to say because of Miss Miller I was so engrossed in all the news articles, TV news reports, magazines during his Presidency, and boy oh boy there sure was a lot going on (if you are old enough to remember). Had I not had her as a teacher I don’t think voting would have had the impact it has had on my life.

This card is for Miss Miller:

The apple, papers and ribbon are from Stamps of Life. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hi, Anne! What an adorable card! The only thing sweeter than your card is your memories of Miss Miller. How nice of you to remember this special teacher, and how nice of you to play along with us at Words 2 Craft By. 🙂

  2. Great layout, and the polka dot paper is perfect for the apple! Where would we be without teachers like Mrs. Miller?!? So happy you shared your story and creation with us at Words 2 Craft By.
