If...

Hi everyone...

If you are here for Diana's blogiversary hop...please see my post HERE!!!!

I wanted to share a layout I made with the fabulous April Artful Delight kit!




Awhile ago, Deana sent me this cute pic of these smiley face wine bottles! I loved it!! Deana sent it to me cause she knows my love of SMILEYS! My title/journaling reads: "If...I drank- this would be my drink of choice! Deana sent me this pic knowing my love of smileys!" :)  (For those that don't know... I have been sober for a longgggg time now!)



I also wanted to share my monthly photo with my kids in honor of Aleida Franklin (you can read her story on my side bar)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
