(my 40th post, wow! : )
Welcome dear friends!! I have been away for a bit; and trying to find my own 'pace' in this wonderful world of blogging!
(tks Tam: )
I recently had the pleasure of visiting my 2 daughters and their families for Easter.
Oh my did I need that! And although the visits are always "too short" : ) I enjoyed it so very much~
Here is a 12X12 lay out I did of the girls about 2 years ago. (the photo was taken when they were 7 & 4 years old.)
The papers and embellishment are from My Mind's Eye Company, the "Find Your Wings And Fly" collection. http://www.mymindseye.com/
I added a few bright buttons, gray & white cotton twine & and some checked washi tape~
FIND YOUR WINGS AND FLY~ They surely did.
I absolutely adored those girls! (Melissa, and Amanda the younger) and I still do today. Though far away, they are my sweetest and best friends. They take great care of me and are so diligent to make sure I am getting along well. Melissa checks in with me every day~ Their hearts are filled with the love of God, and they are wonderful women; with love and honor for me, their mother. They're simply the best!
Just a bit older here~
We were sitting in the car and they were watching for their daddy to return. Amanda had recently gotten one of those "wedge" haircuts!! Oh dear!! What can I say, it was the 1980's! : )
Here is my elder daughter Melissa, with her nephew (my grand son!) Tom.
My eyes well with tears just thinking of her kind nature - she is so wonderful!
Below is Amanda my sweetie! Full of fun and good sense too~ Those are her girls, my granddaughters Emilie (left) and Olivia. The little boy is a cousin of theirs~
(Tom pictured above belongs to Amanda)
Children really are a blessing aren't they!?
My hope is to some day live near them; and soon! (Please God: )
I think that will be the end today : ) I need to get back to work! LOL
Please know your visits and friendships mean the world to me! and I thank you for taking time out of your busy day to pay a visit~
Love & hugs, Karen
