There has been a lot of turmoil in our family for some time now. It has taken a toll on everyone,..including my girls. They are hanging tough,..but I know inside they are torn. The problems they face are not theirs and were not created by them,..but they unfortunately have to deal with them right along with the rest of us. I have always brought us through rough situations in the past and thankfully,..the girls believe I will do it again this time. Being Torn is temporary,....Being a family is forever!

This layout is supposed to depict the struggle that my oldest daughter Brittany has with being a girl and a complete Tomboy at the same time. However,...I don't think she really struggles with it all all. She handles both side beautifully!
This layout was done using plain colored card stock. I made the flower vine myself with florist wire and florist tape. You can make these too using this tutorial:
This layout was made using plain solid colored card stock. I did some dot work on this one and kept it very plain so the focus would be more on the photo. The only colored piece of paper is right under the picture.
The letters are by Heidi Grace in a fantastic Value Pack that I found at JoAnns on sale for 6.99. What a steal for almost 700 letters!
The star was traced using a stencil I bought from Oriental Trading a while back.
All inks are from Tim Holtz.
White pens are by Gellyroll.
Thanks for the visit and don't stay away so long next time!
The idea for this photo came from the movie Twilight. There is a scene in the movie where Edward and Bella are lying in a meadow just looking at one another. I had Erica posed like Bella,..but left the other side empty , as if Erica is Waiting For Edward!
I bought a new punch from a line I've never tried before,...EK Success Punches. I must say,..I love the compact size and the way it folds up for easy storage. It is a fantastic punch and I'm looking forward to purchasing more from this line.
The big letter "E" is from Heidi Grace and was covered in a photo of Bella and Edward that I found in a magazine.
I know that someday Erica will find her Edward!
Thanks for dropping by!
