Good luck!!!

 Hope you like my double layout…as a general rule I never, ever create without photos but my dang printer wasn't working so I'll have to add some later. I created this layout inspired by my youngest sister. Long story short, her birth changed the course that my life would take. Because of her adoption, God planted a seed in my heart and when I grew up and got married, my husband and I adopted our first born. It would never had happened without my sister! I wish I had photos to show off how pretty she is (she's 24, I'm sure she'd just love me going on and on here…LOL!)

 Ok…onto the project!
