Grateful for my Family

Today is certainly a day to be grateful for what you have. We had a wonderful day today with most of my extended family. The weather was perfect, the event was awesome and the kids behaved. I honestly did step back at one point just to take in the whole scene. I really have to be thankful for everything that we have and appreciate those who help us achieve our goals of happiness and freedom.

This is the latest picture of my whole family. It was taken at my daughter's First Holy Communion. After seeing this picture, it just affirms my decision to keep documenting our lives and keeping us together through photographs. Which means I have to make sure I am in more of them!

This layout was put together for the letter G challenge at My Sketch World. The ABC crop is still going strong! The layout for the letter G was to be about "gratitude" or something you are grateful for. I think this picture says it all.

For the Birthday party for The Paper Variety, the newest challenge was to use your favorite embellishment....which if you know me is of course,....BUTTONS!! I even layered some buttons on my flowers! The swirls are some fun stamps and then more buttons! :)

Now on to my favorite color challenge....hmm......


  1. Beautiful LO, love the swirls with the buttons.
