My Girl


Supplies: Perfect Day PP, Sorbet Ribbon, White Daisy Flowers, Brads, Metal Circle Tags, Safety Pin, and CS by CTMH; Chipboard Bracket by Scenic Route; Big Brad and Thickers Letter Stickers by American Crafts; Metal Bookplate Unknown (RAK)

This layout was made for the IB Sketch #3. I changed up quite a few things but the placements are all there. I added in an extra photo and then put the journaling where the title was to be in the original sketch. I love using coordinated papers since that cuts out all the time spent trying to 'match' things up. This was actually a rather quick layout, it took me just over an hour. More pics of Cait just being Cait :D

Cait ran out of speech therapy sessions this week. I had made a thank you card and let Caitlyn draw inside of it a message for Breanna, so she drew her and Breanna in the card. It was so sweet! Then we put some pictures we had taken earlier of them together and during one of the sessions in the card for her. Caitlyn didn't understand that she might not see Breanna again when we left that day so it was a little bittersweet for me. She gave her a hug but it was the usual happy goodbye for her. I hope I'll be able to do enough to help Caitlyn still progress well with her speech and I really hope we can get her back into therapy soon. It has to be preapproved again and you only get so many sessions, but I'm really hoping they give them to us since Cait has gotten such good momentum since she started her speech therapy. It's hard to believe it's been about 3 months since she started it! Anyway, I hope you are all having a great Saturday!

A beautiful layout Marjorie, I love how you have captured the joy in those photos.

Sounds like Caitlyn is doing well and I know you have really put your heart into getting this right for her. You will get your therapy preapproved, I can feel it. Keep up the great work, she will be so much better for it in the future.
