Daughters Are The Flowers of Life

We're back from vacationing in Mexico, had a GREAT time, took lots of pics but unfortunately we got sad news halfway through it that our beloved pup of 15 years had passed.  Needless to say, the hubby came back early and it's just been hard because Jenny was very much a part of our family.  We knew the day would come but the sweet gal was never sick and was just plugging along with us.  It broke my oldest girl's heart and we HATED to tell her because that meant hurting her but it had to be done.  They were truly best friends but after she cried it out, we made a pact that we still had Buddy, who is 14 years, and we could tell he was confused and depressed so we needed to take care of him and help him get through this.  Rheagan immediately stopped crying and made it her mission to help Buddy. It's amazing how much better they both are doing a little over a week later.  Did I mention how wonderful my hubby is to come home early to ensure everything was taken care of before we got home?

Okay, so that's where I've been the last few weeks (previous posts were scheduled while I was gone) but I am back now and ready to get crafty again.  So without further ado, here is that sweet little daughter of mine who is blossoming more and more every day. I used this week's Sketchy Thursdays sketch, which I missed revealing last Thursday due to the whole situation above. You have until Wednesday to play along with us!  I used the Scrapbook Circle "You Are My Sunshine" kit, which is gorgeous by the way.

Supplies from Scrapbook Circle "You Are My Sunshine" kit: Echo Park Country Drive Collection - Bee's Knees, Just Dandy papers; My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Out of the Blue "Playful" alphabet; Scrapbook Circle August 2011 Digital Download; Girls' Paperie jubilee sticker market from May 2011 kit.
