Gossamer Blue July Kit Reveal | My Archie Boy

Hello!  I wanted to share some sneaks from the July Gossamer Blue kits.  Some new exclusives in these kits.

I will do a special post about this because the reason I started this blog was about our adoption and our family, and why it's called Roebuck Adventures.  A week ago I said goodbye to my 21-year old cat, Archie.  I think trying to grieve and process losing him (the house is so empty without him), looking through photos has helped some.  So it was the very first layout I felt I needed to do...about him.   Right now I'm doing things that need to be done, and everything else needs to wait.  My heart is so fragile right now and my mind isn't quite where it needs to be.  But something about creating always seems to help.  I did have to redo one layout because I was little too much on autopilot, and knew I could do better.  I have a girly layout and a layout about our recent vacation.  And since my heart is heavy, being bright and cheery is difficult.  Although, at the same time, I know to cherish those memories and don't let them slip away.

The kits were beautiful and made the process of creating easy and helped me keep my mind processing and going while my heart slowly tags along.

Thank you for stopping by! <3 p="">
