Make Time for Detours...

Hi Stampers -

Today was a pretty tough day. My niece left to begin her basic training and will be gone for 7 months. While we are super proud of her for following this dream of hers it is always hard to say good-bye to someone you care about. This is her first time being away from family so I can imagine how tough it is for her also. I am sure she will do fine and will be focusing on learning her skills, but it still is hard.

Olivia's card is perfect for today...

Olivia used the sweet Molly Makes a Detour from the Uptown Girls Collection from Stamping Bella. I love the fun stitching around the edges and the warm neutral colors. Olivia did a beautiful job coloring this image to match the pretty designer papers as well. Olivia used both copic markers and spectrum noirs to color her image.

This theme of beginning a new journey really fits. And I hope that as my niece, Trista Jo or as we call her... Beaner... begins this new journey that she will have the opportunity to make some detours and enjoy the new places she will see along the way.

We are so proud of you Beaner Jo! We love you and will be thinking of you everyday until you are back at home. Stay strong and kick some bootcamp butt!

Happy Stampin All...
