"Alma"
 This is a gift that I created for one of my life-long best friends Carrie and her sweet daughter Alma (who is my goddaughter). I took this photo of them on Alma's baptism day and have been wanting to do something ever since. To have the responsibility as a godmother is something I take with such honor and I hope to always be there for this little girl- in many ways, but most importantly spiritually :).

Here are a few closeups:
