That. Is. Unforgettable.

I’m so excited to share this layout with you.  It’s one that is dear to my heart.  It was published in this July/Aug. issue of Creating Keepsakes!

I love being part of a company like Spellbinders™ Paper Arts who really keep things in perspective.  I love it that they want to change lives with this passion that we all call paper crafting. 

Touching Lives final

This layout tells the story of when they took a trip to Haiti to reach out to the Haitian victims.  They joined Global Family Philanthropy in a memorable time overseas that will leave them changed forever.  I had the privilege of documenting some of the trip!

We are out enjoying the sunshine on our last few days before the kids go back to school.  I am not ready for an empty house!!  It feels like summer just started.  As exciting as the first day of school is, there seems to always be a sad, sinking feeling in my heart as I watch them enter through the doors to start another year.  Maybe it’s that I begin to realize how fast they really are growing up.  Never mind that for now!  We are busy playing. ; )

Hope you’re enjoying your long weekend too!
