Hello! I wanted to start off by apologizing for being so quiet this past month in the scrappy world. I've hardly made it to anyone's blogs and I feel terrible for neglecting my amazing friends. But as you all know, my family has been going through some life changes, and I'm feeling comfortable enough to share that we're in the process of buying a house. It's a long story, and we're sad to leave the home that we've put so much time, money, work, and tears into- but it's what's best for our family. But it has not been an easy road (and for those of you who have bought a home before, I'm sure you understand)- but I'm just feeling so incredibly blessed by God these past few weeks that I just had to share it with you all! Whether you believe in God or not, or choose to be spiritual in other faiths- I hope you have something out there that you believe in. I know that I have felt God's love in such an intense way these past few weeks- with everything He has made possible- every window he has opened when doors have been slammed shut in our faces- I'm just so overwhelmed with gratitude and feel that I'm filled to the brim with His love- I can't hardly suppress it! So if you've been wondering where I'm at- that is what I'm doing. Many hours spent on the phone on a daily basis with so many different people- all the while taking care of three little kids on my own has left me with very little scrap time- or energy. But we're hoping to have everything done within the next few weeks and before we know it, all will be back to normal.
So I'm fine, really. Just busy!
But last night- my husband didn't have to work overtime and was home "early" for once- and I just had to scrap for me! I got a TON of new Prima product from the C'est Magnifique store the other day and wow- how easy it is to create when you've got so many beautiful things to play with! And what better way to use Prima than for a Prima challenge :)~ so here is my entry for this month's Build-A-Page from Prima:
I actually took this photo the night before last when Aspen was inside the toy bucket, rolling back and forth. She was just way too cute- and I haven't taken pictures for a few weeks now- so she was ALL about getting her photo taken. And once Gunner saw me taking pictures of her- HE had to have his picture taken too! And these are the two of my three kids who HATE to have their pictures taken! I guess that means I need to take pictures less often...yeah, right ;)
Here is the sketch that inspired this layout:
And some closeups:
These Tatiana flowers are seriously gorgeous. I think I got every color option there was- and I'm now regretting not getting doubles as I can see I will use them up quickly!
I've been obsessively using this Memory Box die- and I probably won't stop until I'm sick of it!
The Blue Fern Studios "Floral Clock" is another one of those chipboard pieces that I cannot get enough of! So gorgeous...
What do you guys think of the new Prima wood buttons? I LOVE them!! Also, the Cute chipboard piece comes from Blue Fern Studios. I cut it from the Cute Stuff title out of the "Good Vibes" set.
Thanks for letting me share with you today- both my project and a little personal stuff too. I do try my best to keep my blog scrappy related- as much as possible. But when I'm feeling as good as I am today- it's so hard not to share that with the world~! So thanks...
Take care of yourself, okay? So happy you stopped by :)
