The book is here!

First I want to thank Jamie Tharpe for letting me be a part of this tear jerking book. If you get a copy of this book, be sure to have a box of Kleenex on hand because the book is about memorials, tributes, etc. Jamie was inspired to create this book to honor the lives her two sons, Tyler and Hunter who have passed away. She is a remarkably strong woman to have endured the pain of losing two precious children.

In this book is my first published layout. I just got my comp copy in last week. This is an idea/inspiration book designed around I did a layout on the fourth anniversary of my dad's passing. It's incredible that it was my dad who gave me the gift of my first publication. So even after death, Dad is still giving to me. My layout is at the top titled, "I Miss You". It was such a coincidence that my mom happened to come at the same time as the book came, so I was able to give her the other comp copy of the book to her. My layout is on page 14.

Thanks for letting me share in the excitement!
