Spread your wings and fly......

Good afternoon.......On this wonderful Sunday . How is your weekend going.....I am organizing and cleaning. Getting ready for our daughter who comes back home on the 18th. She has been on the missions for the last 6 months.....feels like forever! It will be so good to have her back home. I wanted to share with you one of my latest layout creations. It is about my daughter.....this pic was taken at the airport the day she left......thought the title was quite fitting.
