What I'll Do Differently This Time Around

This page came together surprisingly quickly...

Journaling reads:

I'm going to admit it. Lately, I've been a big grump. :( As soon as Kevin got home from the last deployment, I started to worry about the next one. I let it take away my enjoyment of everything -- I slipped into a deep sadness. I can't go through another deployment like this. For the sake of my husband, my kids, and especially me, I'll remember how to be Happy.


Supplies (for those interested):

Background is watercolored onto Strathmore 140 lb. watercolor paper using a wet-on-wet method
Chipboard swirls are by Fancy Pants
Chipboard letters are by Pressed Petals, Making Memories, and BasicGrey
Flowers are by Heidi Swapp, and I folded them in half or fourths
Patterned paper on the swirls by BasicGrey
Inks by Colorbox
Clear Embossing Powder covers the letters as well
Gems by Mark Richards

That is beautiful! And I know what you mean- my husband will deploy again 11 months after he gets back- I'm already thinking about it, and he won't even be home for another 4 months!

What a wonderful page. I can't imagine what you go through when he is not there and what the anticipation of him leaving must be like.
