Scrappy: Big Hugs

My brother is currently in Bafia, Cameroon with a host family during his first stage of Peace Corps training. He is learning French and more about his assignment for the next 2 years. I am so proud of my brother, but it was hard to let him go knowing he would miss 3 years worth of birthdays and Christmases and my wedding in May. The pictures were taken at the airport before he left:





I created this layout during the first round of the Nook U- a challenge to use flowers. I used Petaloo flowers and alcohol inks to make the flowers the perfect colors! This is my new favorite thing to do to personalize a layout.

aww, so sad that he's going to miss your wedding =( 3 years is a long time! I'd for sure miss my brothers if they were gone that long.

Beautiful layout! Love that Indie Girl.
