I Won a PaperCrafts Contest!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jan 2, 2008 in Cards

I just got a call from CK Media (anytime you see THAT on your caller id, pick it up right away!) that I was one of the winners of the World Card Making Day Contest in PaperCrafts magazine! I won in the Hello/Thinking of You category with a card similar to this one:

Brad card

I made this card for a SCS challenge a few months ago – we were asked to use brads on a card for the “Ways to Use It” challenge.  I’m sure glad I did that challenge!  The actual card I entered was just slightly different – I matted each of the circles and changed the patterned paper choices a bit before sending it in to the contest.

I won a $175 prize package full of wonderful card making supplies and my card will be published in the March 2008 issue of PaperCrafts magazine. I’m so excited – this just made my day!


Grading Final Exams

Here’s my photo for today.  I spent all morning finishing up grading the final exams for my Computers and Society class.


Hey guys…just a suggestion:  in the future, please READ and ANSWER the ENTIRE question!!!!!  If a question asks you to name four of something, don’t just give me three.  And if it asks you to give both sides of an argument, don’t just give me one side.

And please, please, please…work on your handwriting!  Readers, I challenge you – can you make out the words on this exam:


How about this one?


Okay – now that I’ve given my students a hard time, I have to admit – my handwriting is probably even worse than that. :)

And all in all, they really did very well on the exams.  It was obvious that they listened to what I was saying during my lectures and maybe even…gulp!…learned something from me!

Good job, guys!  Your grades are complete and have been entered – thanks for a fun semester!
