6x6 page for kendall's album

Yay, I finished another page for Kendall's {secret} album, for her birthday later this month. I really can't believe she is almost twelve. I only have one daughter & one son, that is all my body would allow me to have. On top of having Crohn's Disease I had very difficult pregnancies {more with my son} I am very grateful and blessed to have 2 healthy wonderful children. In my head I know that is all I will ever have, but its very hard for my heart to accept. Making this album for Kendall is bringing back so many memories of her growing up. Its amazing what an amazing human I am raising, she really is the nicest, sweetest person I know. I think raising her has been the easy part, the hard part will be learning how to let her go and fly...

I used Verve Visual's guest designer sketch for this layout. In the picture my daughter was wearing red and was on a red pillow case. Picking out the paper was easy, all I need to do was match it to the photo. I finally decided on Cosmo Cricket's Dutch Girl line. All of the images are from Papertreyink {mixed messages, borders & corners and one of their alphabet sets} Since I was working with a photograph and possibly stamping over it, I chose black Stazon ink, which is an alcohol based ink, meaning the ink will not run in humid weather {I live in Florida}. The square brads are from Making Memories...oh and before I forget its a 6in x 6in page layout.

Its Super Tuesday I hope you all went out and voted. I did early voting a few weeks ago, I brought my son with me & now all he wants to do is watch the news lol

Oh WOW!! What a gorgeous photo. Your daughter looks just so incredibly sweet! You have given me goosebumps reading about your feelings about only being able to have two children. The things we take for granted huh?? You kids seem wonderful - a huge blessing for you. Enjoy!
