Hi friends!

I was looking through Pintrest the other day and saw this pin. I LOVE IT! I thought I would share this with you and see if it has the same effect on you as it did me. This has me really thinking, and I love how the writer put a positive spin on something that most people would find negative.

Example of how this affected me is...last night I was cooking my family's favorite meal and my oven died. This (cheap) oven was already here in the house when we moved in and I hated it.
So a few months ago I was cooking some soup and one of the burners blew. I mean sparks flying everywhere and then fire...FIRE! So I knew that if  one burner burned out the others were close behind. Never occurred to me that the oven would do the same thing...it did..FIRE. So after my dinner was ruined I called my sweet husband to let him know what happened. He is such a good listener. He calmly told me that we should be thankful that this oven did not cause major damage (burn the house down) and that it lasted as long as it did. Once I thought about it, I realized he is so right!

Take a read and let me know how it makes you feel.

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection

Good morning!

I finally was able to get this layout finished. Had the start of a migraine and sometimes it hits full on and sometimes it fades away. This one faded away:)

I am still working on the album that I am creating of my family, well all the woman in my family. This is a layout of my mom. I still need to get my mom up here to help with the journaling.  I used my new favorite Martha Stewart wildflower punch. I also did some distressing and water distressing and some inking. Used some beautiful Prima flowers that I got at Hobby Lobby and the butterflies I found over at Swirlydoos.

On another note, please go check out Memorable Seasons. They have some new challenges up and they are wonderful.

Thanks for stopping by and please leave my a comment so I knew you were here:)

I dream in Flowers

Good afternoon!

I'm here to share another that I created with the bo bunny gabrielle collection. This is a layout of my mom when she was about 14-15, wasn't she pretty:)

 I used my wonderful Martha Stewart Wildflowers punch and did a lot of distressing. Printed and hand cut the butterflies and the flourish is say it in crystals from Prima. Been holding that sweet embellishment for a while and thought this layout would would be a perfect place for it:) Some of the flowers are Prima and a few are just extras that I had in my stash. This album that I am doing is coming together so nicely!

I will be back Sunday or Monday with another layout made with this collection!

Have a wonderful weekend!
