Missing my girls!!

As I sit here at my desk this morning, I am feeling very wistful. Having had such a great time with Heidi over the weekend makes me realize just how deeply my heart longs to spend time with my girls! I miss them soooo much! Christmas just can't come soon enough!! I don't know how I am ever going to get through Thanksgiving without them! I am just so happy that they will be together! That does make my sadness seem a little brighter. The best cure for these wistful feelings, though, is scrap therapy!! I am so thankful for this hobby that lets me create and helps me to mend my broken heart at the same time!! Here is a layout I did of my girls from pictures we took over the summer.

This layout is based on a sketch by Allison Cope for the So Sketchy Blog. I used the Scenic Route Sonoma line and a little bit of hand stitching. I just love these papers. I need to do some more creating with them. The colors are gorgeous!!!


I am going to take some time to go and do my bible study. Hopefully that will bring some sonshine into this gray day!!!

Wishing you bright, sunshiny day,

Kristii

Great layout! Sorry you are missing they girls. But very glad the scrap therapy can be helpful. It's supposed to get warmer today, so don't let the white and gray stuff this morning fool you.

Such a gorgeous layout - your girls are beautiful! God is good when we take time in our day to glorify Him. He seems to make things a lot less painful :) Hope your day is brighter today!
