Being a mother

Strong Enough

Happy day I actually found time to work on my artful journal page after... a long day at work ...stopped  at the grocery store check homework ....walking the dog ....and cook dinner.

Sorry pics could be better to late to care

It felt good to create after a busy day ... This quote was perfect for today " You were given this life because you are strong enough to live it" :) 

Create live love life :)

CTMH...Ballon Ride Fun :)

I'm really enjoying creating with CTMH Ballon Ride Paper I love the colors and the Ballons so super cute. Here are two layouts I have done for Scrapacholixs class on Sunday.

The 4x3 card is from the Picture My Life Avonlea collection I love this kit. I love how all CTMH products go so well together makes creating so much easier.

Love these CTMH Trinkets Wooden Shapes ...  Cute accent to add anywhere and they can also be painted I like the wood look :) 

I also use the Ballon Ride Complements chipboard and Ballon Ride Assortments

I am excited about Scrapacholixs can't wait to fnish my layouts and see what amazing layouts my Scrapacholixs Girls create. See you Sunday :)
