It is a beautiful summer here in Michigan. Very hot at the moment, but I wait for these days all winter, so in no way am I complaining. The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I am sitting in front of an open window, just drinking in the beauty around me...JOY!!!
Today I have another page from my daughter's album. This one is about the baptism of their first child. Oh, what a beautiful memory that is. We are so blessed that their home is a God filled haven for the kids to grow up in. The ceremony at the church was beautiful and it was such a happy event. Their son is now 22 years old and getting his PhD at MIT. Woo hoo... we are so happy for him. He is a wonderful, God filled young man. May the Holy Spirit lead him to fulfill the dream God has for him.
So, here's the layout:
The paper is an old world tapestry print that I just love. It has the muted colors of blue, olive green and tea stain. Great for traditional moments like this.
As you can see, I matted in blue and olive green. The branch flourish on the side is from Blue Fern and I added some some small flower dies from Memory Box dies. That's the little blue bells that you see. The dies that are on the market right now are so amazing. They are just beautiful. The problem is, I keep waiting to buy because everyone is coming out with new stuff. Especially with CHA coming up...I guess we had better all wait what all is new after that!!!
I love the sentiment at the bottom.
I used a CHERISH rub-on and then stamped over it to say "remember this moment". I had put the cherish on first and then got this new stamp for "remember this moment" and just really needed to use that in this layout. I like the way it looks.
Here's the challenges I entered with this:
http://wordartwednesday.blogspot.com/ "Therefore with joy shall you draw waters out of the well of salvation" from Isaiah...how fitting is that?
http://citycrafter.blogspot.com/ "Dress it Up" I feel this is dressed up with the large branch flourish and the flowers added on...plus the sentiment on the bottom. I hope this fits with City Crafter's idea of "dressed up".
