This is a hard but very close to my heart day that Lynn said she knew I would pick.
This beautiful little girl has been missing for a year now. She was snatched from her bedroom while she slept. My daughter and her were friends in kindergarten together and this case has touched all our hearts. Her name is Isabella Celis and she would be 8 years old now. She is from Tucson, Arizona and we all just want her home safe. Here is the facebook page if you would like to check it out and hit "like." https://www.facebook.com/FindIsabel?ref=ts&fref=ts
Mother Goose Day
Okay so we already missed getting to celebrate it but I can still show you what I made. I have a dear friend who is expecting a baby this summer and I thought it might be nice to make her a Mother Goose photo album. I bought this awesome Debbie Mum paper a few years back on clearance and I've been waiting for the perfect time to use it and this is it.
