Precious

I've had a hard time scrapping about Maddie lately.  She's made some choices that have affected our family forever and have been painful.  Even so, we love her and we want her to KNOW that for certain.  

When people in our lives do things that hurt us it can sometimes be difficult to see the good that lies in them when their actions have long defined something in complete opposition to goodness. When that happens, I have to intentionally focus on what is good and right and excellent and lovely and praiseworthy.  It has to be a conscious decision.

For Madison, we want her to know that she's precious and loved and important and has place not because of what she does or how she looks or what she produces. She is loved because she is.  Because she is an intentionally designed creation of God and because as such she deserves, needs and even craves love.

Pray for her if you think of her as she is in a place of needing to face the difficult so she can find the beautiful and learn to celebrate that.


For this project, I played with the new Woodgrain Cardstock that Studio Calico is offering as a part of their add-ons now.  I love how it takes color and makes the grain show up so beautifully.  The page was created using the Studio Calico 35mm kit.


I gathered quite a few different Elle's Studio cards from some of the kits to pull this one together.  I'm particularly fond of that Polaroid frame above.


I both sprayed and painted the mists on with a brush.  For those I brushed, I added water to thin it down and get a bit more of a washed effect.


Oh, someone asked yesterday what font I used for the word 'clean'.  I believe it was 'Marketing Script'.  HTH

Hope you are having a fabulous day.

  9. Your words cannot be truer. It's hard sometimes to see all the good in people when you are momentarily blinded by anger or hurt or misunderstanding. I am so glad I read this today, it's touched me. Thank you! :)
