Welcome Home - MDS Scrapbook Page

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I am so happy to be able to share another My Digital Studio Page with you!  This one is very special to me as my Son-In-Law spent 7 months in Afghanistan last year and I was able to be there when he returned.  It was a very special moment for me as I remember those days before my husband retired from the Air Force!  The joy of them finally coming home safe!  There is no feeling like it.  So I am so happy to be able to share with you this event through scrap booking.  My inspiration for this came from the MDS Monday Sketch #17.  

The first picture on the left here was my daughter running into his arms - I did not see him until she took off and then I started taking pictures which was the reason I was allowed to go. lol  Anyway, you can almost see my granddaughter as she was awaiting her turn to get a hug.  In the second photo, they finally turn loose of each other and then they look at my Granddaughter like yes now it is your turn!  Now this is where I am glad that my husband was doing the video (again the only reason he was there) because it was at that time that my camera decided not to take a photo and I missed the hug between Scott and Kyrsten.  But, it is on video, yea!!  Of course Kyrsten had made him a welcome home sign and that is the 3rd picture I have on here.  It was really a wonderful time and I again am so happy I was able to be a part of it.  Now of course we have an addition to that family and you have seen some of those pages I know!

My Digital Studio was used to capture this moment along with a free Marine digital kit from Marisal Lerin from Pixel Scrapper!

Thanks for stopping by today!
