Grandmas....

...are the best, aren't they? I woke up this morning and had an idea for this layout, so I got up early and worked on it, I couldn't sleep a wink last night anyway. Taylor's surgery has me worried. Actually it has her worried too...she woke up at 4 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep. It's going to be a long week, but hopefully all will go well. Oops, O.K. back to grandmas..... what would we do without them? Kati and Taylor both really adore my mom and it just breaks my heart that we can't live there and be closer to her and my dad. Unfortunately the economy isn't as good there, and we would be struggling if we lived there. So I know we are better off here, but it was so hard to leave them when Taylor was one year old. When we were there visiting a couple of weeks ago, Kati followed my mom around and loved to help her garden! They would be the best of buds if they could hang together more often!
Grandma's Love:

I really want to focus on doing more layouts, even if they are simple and quick! Supplies used here: background paper, chipboard letters, rub on saying: Melissa Frances. Felt: Fancy Pants. Rub on swirls: Glitz. Flower: craft supply and button is Basic Grey. I'm off to do some painting today, we put in a new patio door and it hasn't been painted yet, maybe I can cross it off my to-do list today. Have a great day! ~Danielle~

I love when you make LO's! They are just as inspiring and wonderful as all of your other projects and this one is no exception. I love the how the felt adds warmth to the page! Beautiful.

Hang in there, Dani! Everything will be just fine.......as a matter of fact, they will be better than ever! I know what you're going through. My son had surgery when he was in 4th grade, and I was sure a mess about it. Sending you big hugs!
