Good Luck and Good Bye

A co-worker is leaving the states and returning to Puerto Rico.  I used the butterflies to represent freedom - in her case from an abusive situation.  I wish her well.  She deserves to be happy.  We will all miss her.

A Little Twist

My husband's cousin went camping with us last summer.  I took her picture and agreed to "touch it up" for her.  I forgot about that agreement until this morning as I searched camping photos for another project.  I'm happy with the results and want to share them.

Good Luck Baby Doll

Brianna starts school tomorrow, but without her brother by her side.  She will be also be riding the bus for the first time.  So I want to surprise her tomorrow with a card in her backpack.  She's growing up and becoming more and more independent, but still very dependent.  She's still our Baby Doll!

Supplies used:  Stampin' Up and Cricut.
