Keep Smiling

Gracie says, KAYA!

This was another fun challenge. I like the idea of using left over scraps from my LOs on cards. At least nothing goes to waste. I'll try to do this from now on. Thanks again for the inspiration & motivation. For this challenge, I created an LO & a card.

You were feeling a bit under the weather today. You caught a cold & yet that didn't stop you from smiling. You were even teary-eyed when I took this picture but still, you gave mommy the sweetest smile. I hope you'll keep on smiling no matter what life may bring you & remember that mom & dad will always smile with you.
