You Are So Sweet

Good morning! :) I have honestly been MIA lately.. It has been a rough few months and weeks, but I am here, ALIVE, and thankful to to be living and embracing and loving every single thing that God has given me. I hope that you are all doing well and that you are all living life to its fullest capacity and that GOD has made a very strong impact on your life of showing you just how VALUABLE you are and how LOVED you are..


I started out with a white background and layered on a few patterned papers. I added a few ink splattered details.

Then, I added my circular stitchings to my photo to bring more emphasis on my photo. I added my title.

Last, I added my journaling and a few bits and pieces for smaller details. Real easy, but full of charm.

SUPPLIES: My Mind's Eye (paper, die cuts); American Crafts (white card stock; Shimelle- alphabet thickers, word phrase stickers); Basic Grey: brads; Others: dimensional adhesive, sewing machine, thread, and adhesive.

I truly hope your day has been great and continue to be GREAT all week long! I don't want any of my friends, here, in the blogger's world or anywhere else, having a hard time! Much love and prayers to all of you! And, remember- there is always a God that is ready to listen to you and to help you, but the doors are all up to you to open them. :)

Enjoy Life.

Happy Wednesday, ya'll! The weather here has been crazy up north! First, we didn't exactly have a normal winter- our winter felt like spring when it's suppose to be filled with SNOW and below freezing temperatures! Now, it's February- bouncing between 50 degrees, 20 degrees, 50 degrees, and 20 degrees. A mixture of snow and completed melted snow right in between. What is going on here?! But- I am actually loving it since I lived my whole life down south in the big state of TEXAS! :) So- I'm bringing' Texas to the north, aint nuttin' wrong with that! :)

I have a layout to share with you today featuring mainly from My Minds Eye "Alphabet Soup" collection.

Enjoy Life.

I started out with layers of patterned papers from the Alphabet Soup collection. Added some spray mist and ink splatter along with several circular stitching.

Next, I added my photos and played around with a variety of embellishments. Last, I added my title along with a lot of tiny bits like wood veneers and buttons!
