These are my two girls...never in a million years did I think I was going to have two girls! They are such a blessing, and it's exciting to see them getting closer and closer the older they get! They are 5 1/2 years apart, so sometimes it's hard...but it seems as though they are learning to play together better each day, and Kati learns so much from her older sister. I only had a brother, who was 5 1/2 years younger than me, so I've never known what it's like to have a sister to share secrets and have pillow fights with! lol I've always wanted one though.
I created this layout for the Melissa Frances blog. Our assignment this month was to create a layout with the Thankful line of papers and I'm so glad I did this layout, it's precious to me!
The journaling is tucked under the small photos on the bottom and reads:
When I found out we were having a 2nd baby, I thought for sure it was going to be a boy, but at the ultrasound, the nurse told us it was a girl and that my girls would each have a sister to love and be best friends with. She couldn't have been more right. Shortly after that day, a song came out on the radio called, "In My Daughter's Eyes". It touched me so much that I cried every time it came on. I knew the moment I heard it that I was so blessed to be having another girl, and you two would be blessed as well.I thank the Lord that you two have each other. I wouldn't have it any other way. Two girls. I love you both more than you'll ever know. God had a plan, and his plan was perfect. Love, Mom.
One technique I had fun with on this was adding a sticker over the butterfly chipboard. Then I trimmed around it with my Cutterbees scissors and added paint around the edges. While the paint was wet, I sprinkled on some glitter. I've been having fun stamping too and can't get enough of these floral stamps by Melissa Frances! They are called Summer Breeze. Love to cut them out and add them to my pages and cards.
Oh! Did you notice my new blog banner? I LOVE it!!! HUGE thanks to Delaney Gates for making it for me, would you believe I won the chance for her to make one for me on her blog? She is so talented..you should definitely check her blog out! It was time for me to get a new one. I took a class over at SIStv on "blinging out your blog" and it was terrific. SO...you may see some changes here and there!
