There is Only one Like You - Heartfelt Creations

 Wednesdays are always a happy day for me.  Mainly because i have the chance to share some new projects with you using Heartfelt Creations.

So again this week, i am sharing a project using the Everyday Hero's collection.  I know you have had the chance to see what the team has done with it and I bet you have been really inspired.

I have another layout to share with you, this one is centered around my Hubby and this layout was to be for him for Fathers Day.

In all actuality, he is my Everyday Hero.  He makes it possible for me to work out of our home, provides for his family and is very dedicated.  Although we sometimes sacrifice spending time with him, he truly does make time to be with those he loves and I am so very blessed to have him in my life.
