There are those layouts you just enjoy the process even more than the end result. These layouts were so much fun to create. I got my hands dirty...literally stained my hands red. So much fun!
I used some of my favorite pictures from my Cannon Beach ladies retreat trip from last winter. I never get tired of looking at them... they remind me of a weekend of pure relaxation. They are a testament of God's grace. He taught me a lot that weekend and I don't want to forget a moment. I remember...the sunset, the peaceful sound of the waves hitting the shore, watching a dog play catch and chasing a ball in the waves, star gazing and seeing a shooting star with a couple of new friends, walking along the beach alone with my camera...I am glad I took so many pictures of Haystack Rock so I can often gaze upon the breathtaking scene.
Fa.la.la...I created these layouts for Craft Warehouse to use in the Salem Store. Although this layout is made with a new Christmas line of paper, the picture I used wasn't taken during Christmas time and has nothing to do with decking the halls. I just thought the picture's colors went so well with the paper. Ha!
This picture does have a great deal of meaning behind it... it was taken at a women's retreat in Monterey, CA and this was the weekend I knew Josh was "the one" God had prepared me for. This week, my husband and I are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary! It feels like yesterday we said, "I will and I do" and then it feels like, as soul mates, we have always been together. This picture represents that moment in time - the crossroad - God's promise being full-filled. At age 27, He gave me the desire of my heart.
