Thanks Mom

So I've done a simple looking layout about a text message I received from my oldest.  I started by typing up the text message in word and spacing it  so that I could use the Cricut to cut it out. I used the green camouflage to represent my oldest's text message and the blue camouflage for my responses. Now I don't have any pictures for this layout but I thought the speech bubbles with the text's inside them would work instead.

I had picked up some compensation books for my oldest while he is on base.  A couple of days later I got a text from him that said "Thanks Mom", I responded by asking him if needed anything else and he proceeds to tell me that when I was sewing his patches onto his uniforms I sewed the zipper shut.  I've always teased him about doing that and sewing his pockets closed, or the arm or legs shut.  Well I did it and didn't even realize it.
