Blessings...

I have four of them that are very near and dear to my heart. I made this layout last week for the Clear Scraps blog. My post was to go up on 9/11, so I tried to make a project that to me was pertinent to the date that forever changed all of our lives. Every year when that date draws near I sadly remember all of those thousands of people whose lives were so deeply impacted by the tragedy. Which then makes me so very thankful for what I have and for those four sweet little faces that look at me every day.



This layout started with some papers and other products from the Indie Chic line by My Mind's Eye. The Clear Scrap Small Word Blessings was added right on top of the photo. To embellish the word I ran a strip of washi tape across the middle of the word, using my craft knife I then cut the tape off of all of the edges and middles of the letters. Next I outlined the word with a Zig paint pen.






The little wooden heart is from Studio Calico (love those!)

I love this photo. I take this exact same photo every year on Labor Day. This is the sixth year now, ever since my daughter was born...so fun to go back and compare the differences from year to year.
