A warm hello to you! I hope your day is going well! The days sure are galloping along quickly!
The January challenge for KRAFT + is one that had me thinking and I took quite a few days to get this layout done. It is to..
use hand writing on my layout.. and I thought about some significant story I could tell.. I like to create because the actual creating is enjoyable, but for this layout I really wanted to find a little story to tell that has not really been told before.. and so I went with this..
I think most people would know my youngest daughter is adopted, and the journey to bring her home took more than 8 years. There are many stories I could tell from that time but one in particular is what I have used for my layout. A few years before we were even close to being allocated, sorry but that is the hard truth of it, the red tape and paper work was horrendous, we felt like numbers on a waiting list at times, you just tried not to let the emotion of it all get to you.. anyway I was shopping and I saw this beautiful little dress that I held for some time in the shop and then I decided this was going to be the dress our daughter was going to wear on her dedication day at church.. so I bought the dress and it stayed in a cupboard until probably 3 years later, our daughter wore it for her dedication. And my layout..
some closer views..
Well thanks so much to KRAFT + for this challenge, I may not have told this story otherwise.. A special story for my daughter who we longed for so very much and were just so very happy to have her home.
Thanks for coming by and seeing this layout I have created.. I love reading your comments too..
