Hi all!
It's been a while, well I have been super busy creating and send off projects for submissions to see what happens. I am also going back to work, it is wonderful being a stay at home wife but I feel like I need to be back at work. This means my whole schedule is going to be changing and a new one will take its place. I am excited to be out there again and just maybe I will have even more creative ideas to share.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful life as I am.
Thanks so much for listening and stopping by.

G45 LO { Our Journey }

This 12x12 LO that expresses our new journey in life when I married my husband. I used a zipper and tore the papers to reveal the image of our wedding photo as a new chapter in our lives and as a reminder of all the layers we had to go through to get to where we are today! I also used Tulle and pearls tied on the luggage: as we moved to our new home together.
