Friends & Just Because



Just Because 

Last week was so hectic and then over the weekend Kruz (my son) had 2 seizures. They say it's definitely epilepsy. I have been up & down to the doctor so I have had no time to do anything else! I decided to share these 2 layouts that I completed last week.

Well hopefully from tomorrow I can start sharing my Christmas projects with you!!!
