sad today

It is afternoon now; I am sorry for the late post today.

I found out early this morning that a dear friend of mine passed away last night. She'd been battling colon cancer for a year and finally it was time for her to go. She fought valiantly and was such an inspiration to so many people. My daughter, Sarah, is good friends with her daughter so we got to know them pretty well. I am so sad...sad to say goodbye even though I know that she is in a better place, is not hurting or suffering anymore. Yadda yadda yadda. We say that, but even with knowing that there is life after death, even believing in our Saviour who died for us and allowed us to be resurrected and live forever, it is still hard to say goodbye, it still hurts. And, that is okay. We are allowed to grieve because it is painful to say goodbye to those we love. Thank God it is only temporary.

So, I am taking things slowly today, not getting much done that is productive. 3 of the kids are at school, the other is down for a much-needed nap for a little bit longer and then the chaos will begin again.

I will share another Gossamer Blue project with you. I absolutely loved being able to work with this kit as a guest designer this month and had fun creating with the fun mix of product that Lori always puts together.

On this page I used the frame Silhouette cut files included with the kit and like how they are a main design element on the layout. I loved the KI Memories snowflake sheet, too, and cut out lots to use on this page. 

Check out Gossamer Blue for gorgeous kits. I am tempted to join the club, too!
