Just a Little Sketchy! **EIGHT**

Hi all! I'm so pleased to share with you a layout I created using a sketch created by by sweet friend, Lizzy Wurmann! She is recently coming back to scrapbooking again and was asked by Pasion por El Scrap to be on the DT and create a sketch. You can find that blog HERE to view the other FANTABULOUS projects created using this unique and lovely sketch! Thank you for including me Lizzy!

If you are counting down with me you know there are EIGHT days until my daughter returns home from his mission in Paraguay! Remember I am doing a give away to celebrate. Just leave a comment and your name goes into the hat.
Here she is with some of the little children in her first area of Luque. She has such a love for little children and they are just drawn to her as well:

For the quote of the day, I am going to quote part of her last letter home:
"Probably one of the hardest weeks of the mish... we got rejected so many times this week! it was incredible, I´m talking worse than Asuncion rejected. Looks like someone is trying to get me discouraged and desanimada (I´m sorry, I can´t translate that..I just spent like 5 min trying to think of the word in english). But that is NOT going to happen. And everyone keeps saying this week will be even harder, igual no mas. I´m so excited for this week! MY LAST FULL WEEK in the mission field, entonces OBVIOUSLY (like Nick obviously lol) it is going to be AMAZING. Time to step it up, go BIG or go home!! Ha and home is going to have to wait a week and a half. So I´m just going to work my hardest, with the goal of going home TIRED...they might just have to send me home on a stretcher, perfect."
I have no doubt she will finish up STRONG!
Hope you are feeling STRONG today, too! Hugs, Cheryl
