Spirit

In his farewell letter to the Dominion Post, WVU's Interim President McGraf said that one of the things that made West Virginia University so special was the school spirit--people wanted to be a part of something that didn't end after four years.
West Virginia is a small state, with no professional sports team, thus athletics are a big draw. WVU is also the biggest employer in the state. Yet there's more.

WVU will forever be special to Bob and I--we met here! After graduation and a few years away, we came back! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

Awww I love reading all the stories behind your pages. Nice stitch job on this page & the use of the brads!

To answer your question about my 'Pieces of Me II' layout...the puzzle is a texture that comes with Photoshop--not a digital kit--just a texture that is applied to the photo and then given a bit of depth to make it look like a real puzzle.

I appreciate your sweet comments & visiting my blog...

Hugs!
