So Blessed...


I did this layout for a Rusty Pickle challenge over on Create My Keepsake.


Okay, this layout is stretching a bit for the theme of the challenge which was to do a layout celebrating a holiday. I just love that in this photo that DD is in her 4th of July/patriotic dress and that DH is in his uniform. So even though the photo wasn't actually taken on the 4th, it is a very patriotic layout.


Absolutely everything on the layout is the Rusty Pickle Mayflower line except for the lace, 7gypsies photo turn, and the Bazzill scalloped cardstock. The quote strip across the top says, "This nation will remain the land of the free only as long as it is the home of the brave." This quote rings so true right now as my heart aches knowing that we are about to send him to Iraq (in a month) and that he is going to miss her 1st birthday. But he does his job to help secure her future in this country...Thanks for looking!

Christi, what a gorgeous photo of father and daughter.
We wish him well in Iraq. It is a good world when we have men like him helping to make our countries a safer place to be.

AWESOME LO!
You'll have to let us all know Ben's address so that your blog readers can send him care packages while he is away.
THANK HIM for his SERVICE to our COUNTRY!

Have a wonderful weekend and very BLESSED NEW YEAR!

Blessings,
Sandy :)

Oh, this must be an emotional time for you, Christi! The LO is beautiful and will be a good reminder of the important place these 2 special people have in each other's lives. Take care!

This is such a lovely touching layout. I love father-daughter pics as I have many of them. My prayers are with your DH and family as he heads off to Iraq. We are eternally grateful to him for the service he gives to keep our country free and safe.
