First of all, I'm gonna start with the "thank you's" ... I can't begin to tell you HOW MUCH I appreciate all of the well wishes I have received since the Artisan Finalist Announcement. I have received sooo many emails, phone calls, texts, blog comments and Facebook messages with the NICEST comments, virtual "high fives" and votes of support. You have NO IDEA how much these have meant to me. Thankyouthankyou from the bottom of my heart. I am sooo happy that the next three weeks are really busy for me (church youth retreat, senior "getaway" to southern Utah with my daughter and her friends, girl's camp). The countdown continues ...
And I am really HAPPY to be able to share some more digital layouts with you. Have I mentioned that I LOVE MDS???? (The answer??? Probably ... more than once ... winkwink!) I have enjoying going down memory lane as I have put some of these layouts together. The one above, actually, is just from 2010. My dear, sweet mother-in-law was celebrating her 80th birthday. Doesn't she look AMAZING??? Makes me all the more grateful for her spunky spirit and healthy mindset that helped her through her recent fall and long hospital stay. She is truly an inspiration to ALL of us!
