My brother came to visit Chicago on his business trip two months after the disaster and I was thrilled to see him. We rarely see each other so I took a picture. A few days ago, I happened upon it. Taking my most recent favorite collection, My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart Collection I created a 12 x 12" page using 6 x 6" paper :0)

I added a shaped card below that I created in commemoration of Japan's disaster. The details are posted in ScraPerfect's A Card For Japan post a couple of days ago. My friend, Peggy Ruiz, is a Close To My Heart (CTMH) consultant and told me about CTMH selling a stamp set with proceeds going to the Japan Relief Fund.
