Happy New Year and a few Layouts

Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am so late late posting layouts its not even funny.
We had a bit of a family issue happen around Christmas and it took its toll on me completely. I have a sister that is mentally ill and she was missing for 5 days. No one had heard from her, she didn't go to work, she wouldn't answer her phone which that in itself was EXTREMELY odd. My whole family knew that she was sick but she would never admit it to herself. Well while my family went searching I called the hospitals and found her. She had taken what we all thought was a positive step for herself and admitted herself into a mental hospital. Ends up she only did it because she didn't want to go back to work and she needed a way to get her sick pay * sigh*.

Well now my sister is out of the hospital. She is on some kind of medicine that zones her out completely, which is probably what she needs anyways. She also now refusing to talk to us at all. She didn't want no one to know where she was or what was going on. Apparently she didn't think we wouldn't notice her 7 phone calls a day .. who knows lol.

Anyways that is what kept me behind in posting and producing this month. I love my sister alot even though shes a nut job and doesn't realize she has a family that cares.

Ok now on to the layouts. Once again my CT member Darlene has completely and utterly outdone herself. I gave her all these kits to work with yesterday and she gave me layouts for everyone of them almost immediately. I was SHOCKED!!! Some of them are Christmas ones * sigh.. told ya I was behind* but I hope you enjoy them just the same.

One of the women in the pictures below is her daughter. She was recently in a 4 wheeler accident and all the bones in her face was broken from it. Her family has been through a rough time this Christmas as well as mine. I think she looks so beautiful.. she is such a strong woman just to have survived the pain. She is a walking Christmas miracle.
