Last year, before Don & Becky left for a trip to Kenya, a group of friends got together and celebrated Becky's birthday at the Cheesecake Factory in Dallas. I still had those photos in my storage binders, and decided to celebrate Becky's birthday by creating a layout with them. I was absolutely thrilled to find Becky's thank you note in with my photos - with the phrase "sharing my birthday" written inside! (I used a Sketch Support sketch for inspiration & included one of the patterned papers & a journal spot from the Big Idea Festival kit.)
I also created a layout about Don & Becky and was able to include a challenge. This time it was a challenge from my sister Brenda. A couple of months ago, she gave me a strip of patterned paper with elephants on it and challenged me to use it on a layout. I laughed when I saw it because I already had the same strip - we had both trimmed it off the bottom of a piece of gray marbled patterned paper so we could use the paper on a layout. I had saved my strip knowing it might be good for a layout about Don & Becky, so I added Brenda's strip to it and was able to use them as a top & bottom border on this layout.
Journaling Reads: When I met Don & Becky in 2001, I never would have guessed that ten years later they would be full-time missionaries to East Africa. They were both strong Christians, however it has been amazing to watch God move Don from being a full-time pharmacist who was also heavily involved in the Boy Scouts of America to hours spent studying and teaching the Bible with amazing insight and Becky from being a Bible Study attendee to a small group leader to a strong encourager of women studying the Bible for themselves. I miss them, but I have no doubt that they are right where God wants them right now – sharing the gospel in Kenya.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BECKY!
