Making Gifts for Life

Thursday, November 7, 2013



Hi, how are you doing today?
If you had the time change, did it screw up your sleeping patterns as much as it did mine.
This is the first year that the fall back (gaining an hour) messed with me so much, normally it's just the spring ahead that disrupts my patterns.

Today I am sharing a layout that I made for the November 2013 My Mind's Eye Challenge.
The subject was to be about something that you are grateful for or blessed with.
My subject is my husband.
Even though my husband and I have had many hard times, we have had many good times also. He has always been there for me. And for that I am so very grateful. I don't think there is one successful marriage out there that hasn't been though some rough times. 

I always looked at my grandparents relationship and envied what they had. I love them both so much and I always wanted the lasting relationship that they had. My grandparents had been married 68 years when she had passed away. That is amazing to me and I so want our marriage to be that successful.

Anyway, I used the Lost & Found Two paper collection to make this layout. I love the papers in this collection. It's one of my favorite collections that MME has.

I used my Making Memories Slice machine to make the scalloped striped circles, the journaling tag and the title. To make the big background circle I used a circle cutter. 

I used Studio Calico wooden hearts. And a flower from Prima.

Thank you for visiting my blog today.

I will be at the Brainery Bazaar, located inside the Village Gate Square on Saturday 11/9, from 10-6pm, selling the amigurumis that I have been making.
