Ah, but there is a glimmer of (selfish) light in my future! Happy Dance!
I adore that floral pattern on the journaling card. It reminds me of a beloved sheet set from my childhood. I think there were curtains, too. My friend, Mrs. Do-er's daughter happens to have those same patterned sheets, and I waxed nostalgia while grilling her on the details of where she'd found them! Maybe that childhood connection is why I HAD to use that pattern on a layout about my little sis.
Well, since our last au revoir, we DO know when we shall meet again! Christmas in Paris??? Mom and Dad--you are THE BEST!!! Thank you!!! Kiss, kiss!!
