Mini-kit freebie

Here is my entry for KimB's August color challenge at Digi-Scrap Obsession. My inspiration this month was my sweet, funny, fabulous niece, Amye, whose birthday is in August, and who is awaiting the birth of her little boy in about 12 weeks. This is the same niece who suffered a miscarriage in December, so we are particularly joyful about this new pending arrival.



Hope you can use this!

Remember to smile...freebie

As I've shared in the past couple of years, times are extremely difficult for my husband and myself, financially. There are some days, I forget to smile. But then, I get a call from my niece, who tells me something funny that one of her little boys did. Or my husband cracks one of his corny/funny jokes. Or I get a dozen lovely comments in my e-mail from a new blog friend (thanks, Deb!!) who just discovered my word art. Or, while sorting through a box of things, I come across a letter written by my dad the summer before he died. Or Kate sends me another layout she prepared using my word art.




And then I remember all over again the healing power of a smile.



There are so many people in the world who are hurting because of losses, illnesses, financial challenges, and more...perhaps it is you, or someone you love. Share a smile with them today over a cup of coffee, or across a shopping cart...or looking in a mirror. You'll be so glad you did.

Blessings on your day,


Melanie
