Winner of my September ScrapMuse Challenge and Guest designer

This beautiful layout was submitted by one of ScrapMuse's members, Liezl

Her journaling and beautiful design wowed all of the design team members. Her layout is about one of her favorite teachers who also taugh her husband and now her daughter too. Liezl mentioned how participating in this challenge actually helped her realize how much this special teacher had affected all of their lives.

Journaling reads:

She was my Science Teacher in high school (1982). After 12 years our path crossed again in a nearby province where we both work. warm hellos and stories that bring back the old days made us close again. Even closer and deeper when we found out that my hubby happened to be her former student, too (1984). She's happy to see us – both grown-ups, successful in our chosen careers and happily married. Little did she know we're happier to see her still so passionate to teach & nurture young minds. Teaching was never a job for her. It's more of a mission… a calling! Another 12 years and she's our eldest DD's Science Teacher (2008)! Hey, how come she never gets old! She's the same Ms. D I had before. STRICT…TERROR…DISCIPLINARIAN… (you'll never wish to hear her call your name during classes) yet she's SWEET…A TRUE FRIEND… and a GOOD LISTENER (outside classroom)! Not only she taught us "how the earth moves" and "H2O means water" …but she also taught us professionalism, equality, dedication and how to love unconditionally. If we are to pass the same way again – we'll choose to undergo the same "ordeal" being under her supervision.

(Note: her name is Ms. Lerma Dimaandal fondly called Ms. D! )
