Hello There

Wishing everyone a blessed Monday morning!
  I have been absent from my blog far too long!  There are many exciting things going on in my life, but not ready to tell yet!  My newest layout was scrapped using photos of Ava that were taken in March 2013.  I had bought the cute hat for her while we were at the mall one Saturday and knew it would be perfect for her third year photos!   

The inspiration for this layout came from one of my favorite scrappers, Lynette Jacobs.  It was featured in the August issue of Create Magazine.  I decided to print the photos in b&w because the colors were so bold and I wanted to focus on the photos themselves.  Ava is so much fun to scrap for and I love how this one turned out. 
Supplies-Paper: BG Highline POTM, MME Blossom Sisters, BG Hey You (Frame), BG Register, BG Olivia, BoBunny Back to Backs, Chipboard: Heidi Swapp Hearts, Title: Tim Holtz Mini Cards, Wood Veneer: Studio Calico, Border Punch: Martha Stewart, Rub-Ons: Little Yellow Bicycle.

For this layout I choose to use a Basic Grey POTM instead of using it as they the colors and have more left for another layout, or two.  

I feel very blessed to my wonderful husband that is willing to stay in our home town, waiting patiently, for our house to sale.  He works very hard at a job that he loves so I can be here caring for Ava & Grayson....he also has another job on the side since he likes to stay busy.   He took early retirement three years ago, but doesn't want to slow down any time soon.  What a him so much!  He is celebrating his 64th Birthday today!  One of the young men that he works with offered to take him out to dinner tonight.  Thanks, Christian! 

Praying that everyone has a good week.
