It’s been 179 days since my husband has been home. I got to see him with the kids over the July 4th weekend and before that, alone, over Memorial day. Both weekends were spent in New Orleans, closer to where he was training. It was amazing to be together. I miss him terribly. I don’t know how much longer he will be gone, but definitely next year. Meagan’s Creations has a Love Word Art pack out that I think is totally gorgeous. Great masks and swirly titles and such. So beautiful.
For this layout, in addition to Meagan’s Word Art, I used a kit from Manda’s Scrappin’ Creations that was given as part of the September 2010 Color Challenge at the Stuff to Scrap forums. I love the forums there. Great challenges, great ideas, and great freebies. I only needed to participate in one speed scrap long ago to know it was a rad place to be. What post of mine would be complete without a freebie? I love to give you freebies. It makes me happy to read your kind words in the comments and to see the numbers stack up on 4shared after a few days of them being posted. I especially love you other 8.5x11 ladies. We got to stick together! I do these for you! So without further ravings on my part, here are your quickpages. 8.5x11, and 12x12, because I love you square scrappers, too.
