You are my Rock!

As many of you know, my life has been crazy with changes lately. A little over a year ago we moved to Texas from Indiana. Well... it looks like we are on the move again! Arizona, here we come! I also have 4 kids who are growing up and parenting is not always easy. They are at the ages where they are making their own decisions and sometimes it is really difficult to sit back and watch some of the decisions they make! I try to share wisdom with them but at 20, they have all the answers! With all of the craziness, my husband is the person that keeps me sane! I am so thankful for him and his strength!

I have been spending some time over at Club CK. They have some really great challenges going on and one of them is the Thanks Living challenge. For this challenge, we are supposed to (at least try) journal about something we are thankful for each day and then use these notes to help us with our journaling on our scrapbook layouts. And to make it even better, Erika (who is hosting the challenge) also is giving lessons on scrapbook design! For the first month, we are being challenged to use the design concept of lines and the theme of love. Here is the layout I created for my first Thanks Living challenge...


Greg really is my rock and I am so thankful for him! Since I had so much journaling on this LO, I tried to keep the embellishments to a minimum. I used the white flower because it reminds me of the flowers Greg always gives me when we go for walks when we are in Maui. They smell so good! I also had fun with the journaling on this one by adding sticker letters to make certain words pop!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week!

What a fabulous layout! The challenge sounds like a fantastic idea too. I know what your saying about your kids...mine are at that age too!

P.S. I saw a post on my blog about a design team for Frosted designs but I clicked on it and nothing came up. I would love to apply!
