"What A Difference A Year Makes"

This is a layout I created for http://www.sketchythursdays.blogspot.com/

Journaling: In 2009 Alabama had an undefeated season and became the BCS National Champs. What made it even better was that Auburn didn't have a very good season. Well, a year later the roles were reversed. Auburn had an undefeated season and became the BCS National Champs and Alabama didn't have a very good season. Oh, well. That's life. But Bama will always be champions to me!

My 41st Birthday


This is my birthday cake and my birthday present from my husband. I saw these adorable initial cups in Hobby Lobby. Pointed it out to my husband and mentioned that I wanted it. While I was shopping for scrapbook supplies he sneaked to the front of the store and bought it for me! The cup is made to look like a takeout cup with a straw in it but it is made out of hard plastic instead of the soft plastic that takeout cups are made out of so they can be reused.

Birthday Dinner

Bill has to work tonight (my birthday) so he took me out to eat last night. We went to Fried Tomato Buffet.

"I Scrapbook, Therefore I Photograph"

"William: My Protector"

This is layout I created for a challenge on http://www.clubcreatingkeepsakes.com/

William means "resolute protector" and there is no more fitting description for my loving husband. He is always there for me, being strong when I can't.

"Fresh Air"

This is a layout I created to submit to http://www.twistedsketches.com/ with the twist being "fresh".
The girl in the picture is my sweet and beautiful goddaughter, Paris.

"A Wife Of Noble Character"

A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. Proverbs 31:10-11

"3rd Anniversary"

On this layout, I used 3 wallet size wedding pics and one larger pic taken on our anniversary.

"Blessed"

Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all."  -Proverbs 31:28-29

"Sensative"

This is a layout from a scrapbook about me.
Journaling: I am exremely sensative and my feelings get hurt very easily.

"Me"

This is the title page of a scrapbook about me.

Journaling:

The Bundle of Me

 For the good and the bad, I am who I am. Some days I'm a lion, some days I'm a lamb. Like it or not, what you see is what you get. But I'm still a work in progress, God is not done with me yet. All of my experiences have made me what I am today. And I continue to grow, little by little each day. All of the aspects of my personality combine to make up the bundle of me.

"What A Mighty God We Serve"

I woke up with this song in my  head today:

What a mighty God we serve!
What a mighty God we serve!
Angels bow before Him,
Heaven and earth adore Him,
What a mighty God we serve!

"I Remember"

"I Remember"
Journaling: I remember all the times we had together. I remember the good times and I remember the bad times.And I remember very vividly the day she died. My mother...I remember.

"Blast From Bill's Past" Layout

Scrapbook layout I made about Bill's reunion at AUM.

"White Valentine's"

This is a layout I made to submit to http://www.twistedsketches.com/. The "twist" of the sketch (an element that has to be used in the layout somehow) was white, so since I had this beautiful photo of Corey and Quetta in the snow just 2 days before Valentine's Day last year, I decided to use it and title the layout "White Valentine's". (Sorry it is sideways. I couldn't figure out how to rotate it.)

Miracle In Church

Wow! Talk about a mircle in church! Last week, I was wondering if maybe I've overstepped my bounds with God because I've asked Him for so much already and He's been so good to me! Well, I got my answer in church this morning. During Victory in Jesus, the minister of music commented, "Maybe you've put yourself in Jesus' path for healing already and you feel as if you're overstepping your bounds by putting yourself there again." I don't remember the exact wording, but he assured us that we can't overstep our bounds with God. There is no way he could have known I was feeling that way so it had to be God directing his words. Praise the LORD!

Blast From Bill's Past

Yesterday Bill and I went to meet up with some of his friends from AUM. The reunion was set up by Joe, a mutual friend (the one who introduced us). It was nice seeing Joe and his wife and kids again and meeting some of Bill's other friends from college.

Something Amazing

Life is hard. Why is it that I get the overwhelming feeling that this year God is going to do something amazing for  me?

All That Matters

One thing I want to be sure of before I die is that I've been the best mother I can be to Corey (life-giver, nurterer, educator, supporter), and the best wife I can be to Bill (help-mate, soul-mate, supporter). In the end this is all that matters.
