Dear Daughter

SBG always put up a good challenge and you really got to put your thinking hat on to make the layout's that fits but you do grow as a scrapper:-)
I'm so grateful that my oldest daughter always makes sure that I know what's going on in her life and she always makes sure that I get a CD with her photos from her travels around the world. It's a comfort when you don't talk to her every day that we can text each other and we try to talk once every week even if it cost a small fortune. Love e-mail but she can't always access a computer.

Paper, wordart, pin and tab from Jessica's Unamused kit
Paper, letters and paper for writing from Maya's Promise to write and Weathered Treasures kit and the deligt wordart is a freebie from Maya.
Wordart in the left corner from Designer Digitals, also a freebie.

Magical Christmas

We woke up Christmas morning 2004 to this snow and light and it was magic!
