Little Girls Garden Part Three


Little Girls Garden Part Three
I am sorry I am late with this..part..I had planned to get it all done by the end of April...but hey..I got this part up so am getting caught up and in the next couple of days should have the previews done for a part 4 and 5.
This part has flowers, ribbons, word art, papers,frames, color chart and other goodies.
Done in 300 dpi and saved in png format.
A special Thank You to Atomic Cupcake for her stitches action for the row of stitches in the kit.
The child this kit was orginally made for..was an abused child..by the time she was 13 years of age she had received 5 major blows to the head, one of which she was knocked unconcscious for a long period of time and never taken to a hospital, she awoke to her mother, kneeling beside her bed..praying that she did not die..and immediately blacked out again.
Later she awoke..her mother was not there..but laying beside her was her sister, without opening her eyes, she spoke..if I die please tell them mom did it and passed out again.
It should not hurt to be a child!
This May 6th is a walk for the Children Help Line
Never ignore a child looking for help.

Hi there! I'm so thrilled you posted the link to your blog in dustybear! For the last hour I've been perusing your lovely creations (thank you! I had no idea you were so incredibly talented!! LOL) and reading your inspirational little tales, and overall being quite surprised by all of the little gems of wisdom you have scattered here!

I'm so incredibly sorry about your mother. I know from experience that this is one loss that never fully heals...my mother died in 1990 when I was 16....but I do promise that the hurt gets less "sharp" as time goes on. You seem to have a wonderful acceptance of the natural passage of things, and know that she is in a much better place and will always remain safe and whole in your heart. You have my prayers, and I'm so touched by your friends that made it possible for you to spend some quiet moments with her before she passed. God bless.

And as for your kits...I'm just blown away! The little girls garden and art trails are my favorites...just incredible work, and I'm so grateful that you're sharing them with me! Oh..did you ever make a kit to go with Art Trails? I absolutely ADORE this quickpage. I'd love to see any further work you add to it, and if youre just not inspired to create more art trails stuff, I'd be thrilled to finish up the kit for you, as a gift for you to offer to your blog readers. I'd need the schtuff you created of course if you wanted me to do so. Ideally, I'd love to see what you'd do to make it a full kit, but I'm sure your days are very busy!

Well, I'm just so glad I was able to have this little "blogvisit" with you! Its 3:15 am and I still have a few hours of work to do, but taking the time out to come and persuse your lovely pages has added a bit more inspiration where there was really just a lot of "tired and sore" before! LOL

So thanks for that as well!

Have a lovely week, and bless you and yours!

This is such a beautiful kit but such a sad, sad story. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful talent with everyone. I was so sorry to hear about your Mom and am hoping that you are coping with this great loss.

I just found your blog and you have beautiful kits. I love them. I was also crying with the subject of abuse. It took me a long time to forgive the pperson who abused me and my mom didn't believe me either. Then just a few months ago she said those magical all freeing words, I believed you. It was such a burden lifted off of me and I hope for her as well.
