Karen's Layout ~ Die Cut Challenge #3 --Flower(s) ~ Stuck On U Sketches

Hi everyone!!!  Forgive me for not being my usual self, but for some reason I just can't seem to shake this horrible depressed feeling I have from the fires here in Texas....   The last 2 days I've just felt so helpless...
So this will be a short post..
Today we have another Die Cut Challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches, and this one is "Flower(s)"..
I've used a lot of different cartridges and punches on this cute layout of my 2 Great Nieces..  I actually took this layout back with me on vacation and gave it to my sweet/crazy Sister in Law.  These are her 3 beautiful granddaughters... and I hope she enjoys it..   We had the best visit with them this last week...  Just didn't last long enough since we had to come home early!!! :o(

Oh gosh...craziness! We just watched a fire close to our beloved Yosemite...I'm almost at a loss of words for such I guess I'll keep it short and save the words for prayers later.
But to your goodness there is something beyond sweet about this! And WTG on all those carts used! Love it friend!

Hi, sweet Fern, we just got in from vacay ourselves. I had no idea you were so close to the Bastrop area! My heart just grieves for all of those affected by this .. loosing their homes and livestock .. just unimaginable! I will keep you in prayer that you and your home will be safe.

As for your page, it is so soft and pretty! WTG on those cartridges .. woohoo! Try to think on good things and hugs some grandbabes this weekend! Be thinking about you! Hugs! Sandi

Gorgeous layout Fern as always they are always a work of ART! And your subject matter is just to precious! I'm sure you SIL is going to treasure it!
I will keep you in my prayers to keep you and others safe including the pets, livestock and all animals! It is a very frightening time for lots of people, so uncertain fire is, I used to live in So. Calif. and we lived near the Ortega Mtns (from Riverside Co. To Orange Co. overpass) and we had big fires almost EVERY summer and I can tell you that was scary every year, we would get those Santa Ana winds and it would whip up those flames all over again so I know what you are going thru. Stay Safe Dear Friend and I will be thinking and praying for you!
((Hugs)) to you and yours, Theresa

So sorry to hear about the fires. Sounds so scary. Glad you are well and hopefully out of danger.

Love your pink layout. (10 years ago I never thought that I would fall for the color pink, but I really have) the colors work so well together, and I really really love the two embossed hearts. They really stand out!
