New Tree -- featuring Chic Tags :)

Hi everyone :) 

I wanted to share a layout I made for the latest Chic Tags sketch :) 






For those that don't know ... Brian and his first wife had twins that were stillborn ... and we go every Christmas season to decorate their graves ... this past December, we got them a new tree :) 

 


Here is their sketch I used :) 

 


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