Paper Craftin with Erica

My Brenda

Wisconsin is currently in an “uproar” regarding gay marriage.  We currently have a constitutional ban in our state; however, it looks as though it may be overturned very soon.  How cool would it be if I could legally marry my best friend?  Anyway, below are four SEPARATE layouts of My Brenda.  They are 8×8 each and they capture the very best of her!

Quick note:  Brenda has been my biggest supporter for the last 11 years.  She has been there for me through thick and thin… and… for better and worse.  I have been studying for my doctoral degree, for what feels like FOREVER, and she is always there to proofread my papers, boost my esteem when I feel like I can’t do it anymore, and celebrate with me when I do well.  I don’t think I thank her enough, but how do you thank someone for all of that support (rhetorical quesiton).

Brenda just finished “winning” the princess game we played with Merceydeis.  Bottom Left – My Two Cuties… literally.  Tres (our Chihuahua) and Brenda.  Bottom Right – My Inspiration… truly.  Merceydeis (when she was little) and Brenda are my greatest support system.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.  XOXOXOXOXO
