Love all of the wonderful pictures and info you have about Houston. My sister lived in Houston for awhile years ago. She brought me back an adorable little space capsule charm for on my charm bracelet. Unfortunately the charm and bracelet were stolen when someone broke into our home years ago. I just love how you put all of those wonderful images together to make this beautiful card. Hugs ~ Charlene
