My Little Sailor

I had a wonderful time seeing Marcus on Friday and Saturday. I’m so thankful he was flying out of Midway instead of O’Hare so we were able to connect with him before his flight out. I made a card that matched the door banner and slipped the card in his carry-on suitcase, along with a letter that Hunter wrote him. I wanted him to find it when he arrived at his new barracks. Darn that airport security! He had to unpack the suitcase for them and he saw them. That’s o.k., though. I told him not to open them until he was in South Carolina.  I’ve already been able to speak to him a couple times (he’s on Liberty today), which makes this transition much easier. I don’t like him being so far away, but at least I can hear his voice now! My layout was inspired by this week’s Pals Paper Arts 316 sketch challenge (PPA316).
